A married couple decided that it would be wonderful to spend Christmas Eve in Bethlehem. So they flew to Israel, rented a car and drove to Bethlehem. They didn’t anticipate that so many other people would also think that it would be a good idea to be in Bethlehem for the holiday. They found that there was no room for them at any inn!
The husband pleaded for a room, but the hotel clerk said that they had no rooms available. He offered to pay double, but the clerk still insisted that he had nothing to offer.
Finally, the husband said, “I’ll bet if a man came in and said that his name was Joseph, and his wife waiting out in the car was named Mary, and that she was about to have a baby any minute, you would find a place for them to stay!
The clerk nervously stammered, “Yes, I suppose I would.”
“Well, I can guarantee you they aren’t coming! We’ll take their room!”
I hope that you make room for Jesus in your Christmas!
“…Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”—Luke 2:15.
