An unmarried teenage girl was a strange choice to bear the Son of God. A stable that was smelly, dirty and the only option available is a strange place for the Son of God to enter into the world. Lowly shepherds and pagan magi were a strange choice to be the first to welcome and worship him. But these strange choices pale in comparison to God’s strangest choice of all – to become one of us to save us. Not just long ago in a place far away; but every single day in the lives of those who need it most. Yes, indeed, it’s a strange choice- but thank God that’s exactly what has happened!
