The Innkeeper: Don’t Miss Christ This Christmas!
The innkeeper had no room; and the question is, do you have any room? Is there any space to give Jesus Christ his due? Just like us, many who lived in Jesus’ day were into money, they were into government, they were into the politics of the day and Jesus had gotten lost in it. So the innkeeper, he missed Jesus that day. In fact, there were more animals at Jesus’s birth than people. So the first one who missed Jesus was the innkeeper. Business was good. The economics were working. But with good business, a crowded place, a packed hotel, Jesus was missing.
