The Journey:The Stable


The Stable:
One of the Innkeepers told Joseph that all he had was a stable in which he and Mary could spend the night. Imagine for a moment what that must have been like for Mary. She was pregnant, and in labor, and all she had for shelter for her, Joseph and her new Babe, was a stable full of hay. Can you imagine how you would feel today? However, I am sure they were very thankful and grateful that they had a place in which she could bear the Son of God. It was actually nicer than being in the inn. In that day and age, inns would house multiple people in a room. Complete strangers would stay in the same room and, sometimes, the same bed. In the stable, they would be alone and have privacy for giving birth.

What a very humble, meek and lowly place in which the Son of God, a King, would come into the world surrounded by animals. A feeding trough full of hay, which was used for the animals to eat and drink, was all Mary had in which to lay her newborn Son. No crib, no cradle, only an animals' feeding trough. The stable was a place that was used to keep the animals such as cattle, oxen, donkeys, and sheep.
