Baby worship

As part of "evolution" we were designed for baby worship. I guess worship is a really strong word, but whenever we see babies we oo and ah, and naturally want to nurture and protect the baby. Crowds would form around babies and observe everything they do.

If not for this, the defenceless being would be in dire danger! They can't protect themselves or even verbalise their distress. But babies do cry! And their mothers can tell, mostly or guess, what their needs are from the cries.

When there is a newborn, people go visit the mother in hospital, they look at baby photos and ask all types of questions.

Some 2000 years ago, another baby was born. His name was Jesus and shepherds/wise men came to visit this child. They truly worshipped him because he is the King of Kings and not just because he was a cute little baby.

Today, we can still worship Jesus, the Prince of Peace as we do a baby or infant. We can find out more about him, we can ooh and ahh at his every move, we can talk to him in our own way and we can sing him happy birthday or other songs of praise!

Isaiah 9

6 For to us a child is born, 
   to us a son is given, 
   and the government will be on his shoulders. 
And he will be called 
   Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, 
   Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 
7 Of the greatness of his government and peace 
   there will be no end. 
He will reign on David’s throne 
   and over his kingdom, 
establishing and upholding it 
   with justice and righteousness 
   from that time on and forever. 
The zeal of the LORD Almighty 
   will accomplish this.
