Rags to Righteousness

It was Christmastime and I was thinking about the idea of Jesus in a manger, wrapped in swaddling clothes. It occurred to me that those clothes were, no doubt, rags. As I pondered this thought, I was reminded of the scripture Isaiah 64:6 that refers to our righteous acts being like “filthy rags” before God. Carried by this image, I began to write and the song, Rags to Righteousness was born. I am particularly fond of the image of Mary nursing baby Jesus the very first time and how incredibly profound that moment must have been for her. Merry Christmas, one and all…
