Merry Christmas

He was born in poverty to a homeless family in a stable.
He was never the head of a large company, never in politics, never wealthy.
He worked with his hands as a carpenter until he was 30 years old.

For 3 years he walked the countryside preaching that we should serve others and not have others be in service to us, that we should make ourselves last and God would make us first, that we should not judge others, and what his cousin John had preached, that if a man has two coats he should share one with the man who has none. 

The people in power killed him for what he taught and yet the world today looks to him for for inspiration.
It is said he died to save us from our sins, but he also lived to show us how to live.

This poor, humble worker, to some the Son of God, to some a prophet, to all an example of how to live a good life.
