    brings forth remembrance of Jesus Christ’s birth. However, the nativity story, the story of Christ birth, has much more meaning to it then what people reflect on it as. When the Nativity story is told it seems the main focus or the “happy ending” is always the savior birth. That arguably is not what the Bible fully attended the focus to remain on. The Nativity story is more than just a story about Christ birth; it is a metaphor that paints the picture of the two people’s faith in God and ultimately

I know that Jesus Christ is always there for me and is steadfast in his love (Lamentations 3:22-23), but I think that I rely on myself and my own devices way too heavily and I lose sight of how much he truly loves me and the significance of his unfailing love. I think that I leave him and come back to him repeatedly
