A Baby

I had the opportunity to hold a baby last night. Her name is Riley. She is a month old. I have never held such a fragile thing in my life. With difficulty, I held her head in place as she slept. So fragile.

My God chose to enter the world in the exact same way. The God that created the heavens came to earth in a form of a baby. Fragile body, fragile head, fragile life. He forfeited the equality of God to live among us.

He learned how to hold his head up, crawl, walk, and talk. The same way I grew to live, he did as well. But he did it perfectly. He made it whole. He is the way, the truth and the life.

Who came as a baby. So fragile.
