When Jesus is born, the light of the world enters into the darkness.

But how do we get his light out into the darkness of our world?

Think of the baby Jesus.

How does an infant get out into the world?

Too young to walk or even crawl.

An infant gets out into the world in only one way.

Carried by others.

So, God, in his wisdom, comes as an infant in order that the only way the light will break through the darkness-

Is to be carried by you.
