Entertain the Angels This Year

“Come to Bethlehem and see Him whose birth the angels sing; Come adore on bended knee Christ, the Lord, the newborn King.” 

—Angels We Have Heard on High

The picture often seen in the Christmas story is of the Holy Family. How could the innkeeper of Bethlehem be so unkind as to turn Mary and Joseph away and send them to the manger? What was his reason for sending them to the manger? The innkeeper missed Christmas and with it the blessing of his lifetime. He could have been host to a King!

Some of us will miss Christmas this year, also, because we will concentrate more on the gifts than the giver. One verse of scripture that would save us all from the innkeeper’s mistake is found in Hebrews.

“Be not forgetful to entertain strangers; for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” ––Hebrews 13:2

Christ came as a baby; we might look for Christmas in small packages too.

Dorothy and Eugene Stolze—1990
