From humble beginnings

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
    though you are small among the clans of Judah,
out of you will come for me
    one who will be ruler over Israel,
whose origins are from of old,
    from ancient times.”

Therefore Israel will be abandoned
    until the time when she who is in labour bears a son,
and the rest of his brothers return
    to join the Israelites." - Micah 5:2-3

Our world still glorifies the Big, the Rich, the Powerful, the Rock star. When will we learn that God does his best miracles from the smallest, most obscure and seemingly insignificant of places and people?

Jesus's family lineage is traced back to a small clan in Judah. He was even mocked for coming from Nazareth, yet this is how does his best work - God takes people from humble beginnings and he uses them for his greatest Glory.


Living in Grace
