Christ-Poor and Homeless

Christ, born in a stable, amongst the filth and stink. Not a very noble start. Pretty much homeless. Today, we clean up all the pictures and manger scenes. After all. The wise men are always portrayed as good looking in the Christmas nativity scenes and plays. They would have probably been pretty rough looking and stinky. The swaddling clothes was probably strips of a gunny sack. Used. No one likes to think of Christ in this manner. It doesn't fit. We like the clean-cut version. I have always thought that if one were to take the life of Christ seriously, and use him as a role model, you would definitely get your hands and clothes dirty.
