Like the Shepherds

by Mark Weinrich

‘Truly I say to you,
to the extent that you did it to
one of these brothers of Mine,
even the least of them,* you did
it to Me.’ Matthew 25:40

I am a Christmas
seeker, searching
like the shepherds
in the unexpected,
the ordinary, and
the overlooked
places and people.
Knowing by faith
that Christ 
is unwrapped
and revealed
every day
in the Bethlehems
around us.

*The hungry, the thirsty, the stranger,
the naked, the sick, and the prisoner.
