MacDonald: They were all looking for a king

Saturday, December 23, 2023
    While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
    —Luke 2:6-7 (NIV)
They were all looking for a king
To slay their foes, and lift them high;
Thou cam’st, a little baby thing
That made a woman cry.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), The Poetical Works of George MacDonald, v. 2, London: Chatto & Windus, 1893, p. 323 (see the book)
    See also Luke 2:6-7; Matt. 2:6; 26:52-54; Luke 22:37; 24:25-26; John 1:10-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your people seek You.
