The Value of Small

One little town,
yet a single event
changed the world and its history
through the Son who was sent.

One ray of light
in a star-studded sky
gave direction to those searching
for God's Promise brought nigh.

One unknown girl
without status or fame
became the mother of Messiah
as the angel proclaimed.

One tiny baby
with no bed of his own
was the Good News incarnate.
God's mercy was shown.

Any life deemed by others
as worthless or small
gains meaning and purpose
by following His call.
