Mi 5:1-42 You, Bethlehem-Ephrathah TOO SMALL to be among the clans of Judah
Jn 1:45-46 Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one about whom Moses wrote in the law, and also the prophets, Jesus, son of Joseph, from Nazareth.” But Nathanael said to him, “CAN ANYTHING GOOD COME FROM NAZARETH?”
Our Human way tends to think that "bigger is better", trusting people who have power, money or fame.
That is not God's Way:
- You, Bethlehem-Ephrathah too small... from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel;
- Can anything good come from Nazareth? Philip said to him, “Come and see.”(Jesus)
- Mother Teresa Small woman who had the ear of a Saintly Pope
- St. Thérèse of Lisieux Never left her convent, is the patron of Missions
AND - a tiny baby, born in a manger SAVIOR OF THE WORLD
Let us Pray Psalm 119:18. “Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from your law.” Ep 1:18 "Having the eyes of (my) heart enlightened, that (I) may know what is the hope to which He has called (me), what are the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints."
