I think it was to show that he was both born and died in a humble position.
Mom went over my school with me today and I'm not as foar behind as I thought! But I'm still WAY behind in grammar and history. I'm always behind in grammar though, but not usaully history. Yeah, I didn't do my sisters' room, but that's the only room that will be decorated that I didn't do. =) The hardest part was the window sills, the pine garlands wouldn't stay! I finally got them to stay, and then guess what? our cat came and knocked them over! UGH! Well, at least they've stayed for several days now! They usually do fall off several times every year, you have to be really careful around them! lol, I hope you have a great afternoon! ~Lizzie
Thank you for commenting Lizzie! I agree with you that a big part of the manger birth was humility. Because He came in a lowly state, it showed that His kingdom was not of this earth. All of the Jews were expecting the Messiah to come majestically and gloriously because they thought He would be a ruler of this earth. But He came humbly, not to BE served but TO serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many (Matthew 20:28).
I think it was to show the world how humble our great God is. The manger birth, I think, is a symbol of humility that God gave to us to show us how awesome He is!!!!!!! Merry CHRISTmas, Chloe!
