Swaddling Clothes

I have been really wrapped up in the Christmas story this year. For whatever reason, G-d has shed some light on things I use to ignore. Embracing His story will change your life. I would encourage you to read the Christmas story in Matthew and Luke. Then be like the shepherds after they heard the good news, they went to find Jesus. And they found Him.

Here are a few thoughts that have been stirring.

Jesus wrapped in swaddling clothes – From my understanding this would have been pieces of linen. Mary would wrap Him tightly with the linen. However, everyday she would Unwrap Him for obvious reasons (cleaning). The thought is we too should unwrap Jesus on a daily bases. The only difference is when we unwrap Him He cleanses us.

He is the gift from G-d that needs to be opened. And the best part this gift keeps giving and there is something new every day when you open it.

Just a thought
