The Importance of Specificity

Prince of Peace
by Akiane Kramarik
Elemental differences are often overlooked when sufficient specificity is not included in comparisons.  As a rule, we tend to be way too ready to assume a likeness if not identity.  The truth is that subtle differences matter—can even be decisive.  On this Christmas Eve let us not overlook the contrast between Christ and the various pretenders professing a special ranking with God.  The beauty of Jesus is his transparency.  I think this is what his disciples found irresistibly magnetic about his personhood.  He is the bridge, the illuminated pathway to eternity given to us by a loving heavenly father.  This Christmas let us celebrate the simplicity of Jesus regaled in his father’s love now sitting too often in sorrow at his father’s right hand.
