Then it struck me: many people fantasize about Santa Claus and elves because they find it hard to believe the Christmas story. Why would God choose to reveal Himself to us in human form? That seems irrational, illogical, but that’s exactly what God did. When God wanted to manifest His infinite love for us, He sent it in a tiny baby, who in manhood would teach us God’s ways and lead us back to Him. That is a deep and wonderful truth—and something we can really celebrate.
