And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. (Luke 2:12)
The very first lesson that Jesus taught upon His birth was humility. We’ve all heard it said that humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less! This goes against our natural inclinations. We think to be happy we must continually put ourselves first, but this simply isn't true... And this was one of Jesus' first lessons. A lesson from the manger.
