Unpacking Christmas decorations, I found one incomplete nativity after another. One was missing Mary, another no Joseph, lost wise men and shepherds, even baby Jesus missing. I realized all the leftover misfits and outcasts needed to be together. Looks unusual, but I thought how this is the most accurate nativity. Because no matter our background, ethnicity, gender, social status, back account, what we've done or what someone has done to us, everyone is welcome with Jesus.

Feel like you don't fit in? Jesus welcomes you and anyone who seeks Him. And one day, instead of a nativity, there will be a great multitude from all peoples standing before Jesus' throne. Those who choose to switch from doing life their own way and who begin a relationship with Him.
