Advent Challenge Day 14

Luke 2:1-7 New International Version (NIV)  The Birth of Jesus

2 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be
taken of the entire Roman world.  2  (This was the first census that took place
while Quirinius was governor of Syria.)  3  And everyone went to their own
town to register.
4  So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to
Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of
David.  5  He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married
to him and was expecting a child.  6  While they were there, the time came for
the baby to be born,  7  and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She
wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no
guest room available for them.

Challenge: There was no room for them in the inn. Mary wrapped Jesus in swaddling
clothes. What can you do for someone with no home or lacking in physical resources? Can you give a goody bag to someone that is homeless or asking for help around town? Can you give blankets to the local shelter? Think about what you can do for people that are forgotten – that are on the outside looking in….be a burst of hope.
