The kids used to need me…the business once needed me…my spouse never needs me. Lonely people fight feelings of insignificance. What do you do? How do you cope with such cries for significance? Some stay busy; others stay drunk. Some buy pets; others buy lovers. Some seek therapy. Yet only a few seek God.

He invites all of us to do so. God’s ultimate cure for the common life takes you to a manger. “…’and they shall call His name Immanuel,’ which is translated, ‘God with us’” (Matthew 1:23). There’s no withholding tax on God’s “with” promise. He is with us. God is with us!
