Christ | Christmas | Compassion | Incarnation | Mercy

Ian Burnett tells us in his book, Lord of All Life, that James the Fifth of Scotland on occasion would lay aside the royal robe of king and put on the simple robes of the peasant. In such a disguise, he was able to move freely about the land, making friends with ordinary folk, entering into their difficulties, appreciating their handicaps, sympathizing with them in their sorrow. And when as king he sat again upon the throne, he was better able to rule over them with fatherly compassion and mercy. Jurgen Moltman says something of the same thing in his words about God. God shares in human experience and thereby is better able to accept man. From Christian Communications Laboratory
