What Entertainment He Had At His Birth!
         For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.         
         (II Corinthians 8:9)

  Now here you see the Son of God, and the Lord of glory, what entertainment He had at His birth, amongst them that were in the pomp of the world. You know a manger is in a stable, where you feed your horses in. And who were Mary and Christ's visitors, but the country shepherds that watched their flocks by night... Oh! the proud and lofty ones might say, this place was good enough; there was no room within for a carpenter's wife and her son...
  (George Fox)
