Wishing all of you a wonderful holiday!
It's easy this year to get lost in the commercialism of the holiday and overlook the spiritual side. One of my favourite modern Christmas songs is Downhere's "How Many Kings", which reminds me of the Israelite's and my own need and longing for a messiah to come. Here is the first verse and chorus:
Follow the star to a place unexpected
Would you believe after all we’ve projected
A child in a manger
Lowly and small, the weakest of all
Unlikeliness hero, wrapped in his mothers shawl
Just a child
Is this who we’ve waited for?
Cause how many kings, stepped down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
How many Gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that has torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?
