Bethlehem was not a great town within Israel; in fact it was quite small. You might even use words like ‘quaint’ and ‘provincial’, especially when you compare it to Jerusalem. How like our God is it though to choose a relatively insignificant place to achieve great things? It’s the same with people. You might not think of yourself as one of the great and good in this world yet God can do great and good things if you are willing to help.
What do you think?
