A manger is an eating trough, a feeding place so to speak. And it would have been layered with hay to make the baby Jesus more comfortable.
What do we think of when we hear the word hay; dried plants that feed animals.
But what if hay was really hey…like … HEY… I am going to change the world!
Or hey! The time is right to make hay/hey while the sun/son shines!
As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:16, 17 NIV)
Prayer- Lord we look for meanings and signs everywhere but they are found only in your son the Christ. Thank you. Amen.
