Oversized Christ Child

Recently someone donated a nativity set to our congregation. I was not sure what to think of this nativity set when we first received it, because, the Christ child is big, really big. All the adults and livestock look small in comparison to the oversized baby Jesus. However, the more I look at our nativity, the more I am beginning to appreciate the point the artist was seeking to make with the size of Jesus. Christ should be larger than everything else and everything else, in comparison to Christ, should seem smaller.
 
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. (Luke 2:11)
 
Amen.
