Right Side Up – A Christmas Prayer

nativity

Lord Jesus, so many contradictions describe You and Your life on earth. Even with the things You said, and especially with the things You did, it seems You turned everything up-side-down. It was all so unexpected.

But maybe, Lord, You were really turning things right side up again. Putting things back the way they should have been all along.

Lord, the humble life You lived was the life You also called us to … to be servants of others, to give, to touch, the comfort. To love.
