When God gave music to the world it was not in some theory of counterpoint and harmony; he dressed a song in feathers and sat it on a tree. When God gave love to the world it was not in some thesis on the emotions; He implanted it in a mother’s heart. When God gave Himself to the world it was not in some new piece of theology. He wrapped a babe in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger. ‘Let us go, even unto Bethlehem and see this thing which is come to pass.’
