Luke 2:1-7; John 1:4-5; Proverbs 14:4
– If the birth of Jesus was not perfect, and should have been, why is it that we believe things in our life should be perfect?
– Jesus was “thisclose” to being raised by a single mom.
– We expect perfect when less than perfect is okay.
– Jesus’ life was the most influential on the earth.
– We live in life, not lifetime.
– A life worth living, comes with a mess.
– Out of the mess, comes a blessing.
– Jesus was born into a mess.
– God’s perfect love can allow us to overcome all the less than perfect things in our life.
– The Hallmark card is not realistic.
– If the very first Christmas wasn’t perfect, we cannot expect our Christmas to be so.  And even if it’s not perfect, it’s still good.
– We can be better but we won’t be perfect.
– Less than perfect really is okay.
