From Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s “God is in the Manger”

Who among us will celebrate Christmas correctly?
Whoever finally lays down all power, all honor, all reputation,
all vanity, all arrogance, all individualism beside the manger;
whoever remains lowly and lets God alone be high;
whoever looks at the child in the manger and sees
the glory of God precisely in his lowliness.”

– Dietrich Bonhoeffer, God Is in the Manger
