Why He Was Laid in a Manger

   Thank God, none are too bad or too low-down to take Jesus Christ into their hearts. There was once a drunkard who wakened one morning in a strange kind of bed, feeling something near him warm and soft. Finally it dawned on him that he was in a stable close beside a cow. He laughed grimly as he thought of breakfast. In his mind he went over those who might be persuaded to help him with a meal. "No, I can't ask any of them, they would say I have fallen too low." Then he heard the bells ringing and began to realize it was Christmas Day. "What was that story about shepherds - the angels - and a manger?" Well, he wasn't the first one who had slept in a stable. He thought, "Maybe the reason He slept in a manger was so He could help a fellow like me - a fellow too low for anyone to help." There and then the poor outcast knelt and prayed the prayer of the publican, "God, be merciful to me a sinner."
