“But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days.” Micah 5:2 (ESV)
The Messiah came from an insignificant earthly background so take heart if you’re embarrassed with your heritage. You may feel like your family is unimportant, uninteresting, unattractive, or uncelebrated in the world, but God thinks differently of you because He identifies with you through His Son Jesus Christ. In Christ, you are significant to the Kingdom of God.
Let’s pray today that we may remind ourselves that Jesus died on Calvary’s cross for us.
