Is there anything more precious in the world than newborn babies? What marvelous power seems to come from such a humble, helpless creature—we probably all have witnessed a newborn turning a normally serious-minded person into goo-goo-gahing, baby-talking fool; seen a newborn filling a home with hushed tones and gentle lullabies; experienced a newborn filling our arms with what seems like a fresh piece of heaven; felt a little baby filling every nook and cranny of our hearts with love.
Looking at the power of these humble, helpless beings we catch a glimpse of what Mary, Joseph, shepherds, wise men, and angelic witnesses felt at the sight of the newborn King, the baby Jesus. This was no ordinary baby. Here in front of them, lay Jehovah, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the creator of galaxies and planets including our earth, the Alpha and Omega, the Savior of the world!
