Luke 2:12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” (NIV)
No, this is not a joke, someone has stolen the nativity scene Baby Jesus in the manger from a busy street. Having been kidnapped before, every possible precaution was taken, even going so far as weighing the piece down with 80 pounds of cement and cameras in the vicinity. Alas, it was grabbed. The woman being interviewed on the news was highly agitated and upset, that this had happened, yet again.
My LORD, Jesus Christ is sitting beside His Father, they will not be putting out “amber alerts” to find, not just this one, but the other missing replicas. I wanted to be upset for a moment myself but I realized that was futile. There are callous and idiotic people in the world. People who do stupid things without thinking through to the consequences. What a lark, they ruined a nativity scene and left a hole where the replica of a baby had been set up. However, the spirit of the season will not be ruined. Christ was born and His birth is the reason for the celebrations and displays. Jesus birth is a fact, it happened and I pray that even through these senseless acts, someone may be drawn to get to know about Christ!
Making His praise glorious!
