He who fills all of creation came to us wrapped in obscurity, in what was a little insignificant town within the mighty Roman Empire.

 

He whose omnipotence spoke the worlds into being came wrapped in circumstance having engineered the census that would bring Him forth at just such a time.

 

The one who holds all majesty came wrapped in poverty among the sheep and the goats in a common stable.

 

He who is all truth came wrapped in mystery and awe to many who would come to see Him.

 

He who is above all materiality, a being so Holy and set apart from all else He is incomprehensible, and yet He came wrapped in the flesh of a helpless little human baby….

 

How are some of the other ways ‘God with us’, the greatest gift of all, was wrapped…please add…

 

In His love

 

Brother Paul

There's a deeper meaning behind why Jesus was born among filth, and the deeper meaning is pretty darn awesome. The humility of it. :amen:

Yes,the humility is pretty darn awesome alright.And the Bible says He was wrapped in swaddling cloths which are narrow bands of cloth.

Jesus was born in the area where all the sheep were born that were to be sacrificed in the temple for sins.   Those shepherds that the Angel visited would be the people who watched over and selected the sheep for sacrifice. The stable where he was born was a fitting place for him to be born considering his reason to be here.
