What gives you hope for a better future?
The story of Christmas is a source of hope for millions of Christians around the world. In this story, Jesus is born and placed in a manger (a feeding box used for animals) because there wasn’t room elsewhere. He then goes on to live a simple life as a carpenter before preaching about the good news of the kingdom of heaven, speaking out against oppression, and being crucified by the Romans — after which he is resurrected and ascends to rule in heaven.
In this way, Christians see godliness and hope even in simple and humble beginnings, a baby laid in a manger.
- How is each new baby on Earth a symbol of hope?
