For anyone who has ever in any way been a victim of the sin of another this story is for you. Jesus came to give life to all. He was announced to lowly shepherds who were marginalized in the society. He was born to a poor couple who were ostracized from their community and eventually fled as refugees to Egypt to escape danger. He was worshiped by magi from the East. As we celebrate the birth of Jesus this week, we need to remember that he is Lord for all of us. The story of Bathsheba and her inclusion in the genealogy of Jesus if nothing else reminds us of God’s grace and healing for all.
