“She gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them” (Luke 2:7).
Jesus was a king when He was born, but He wasn’t born in a palace. Instead, He was born in a room that was sometimes used to shelter animals in the coldest nights of winter. After He was born, His mother wrapped Him in cloths and laid Him in a feed trough called a manger. It wasn’t fancy or expensive or covered with gold and silver. It was a humble place to be born.
