If I were a refugee I would be terrified, I would not know where to go or what to do. I would be sad too, leaving family and friends and all I owned and loved. I would also be so upset for having to leave my home. I know only know a bit of Chinese, and Italian and and French and Vietnamese. But I do know tons of Spanish! I think where ever I went I would still be devastated. I do know one word of all the almost all the other languages, sadly it is not Help but it is hello. Very useful, not!! I would need to know where everything is and how to live in that country. I would be upset for no matter what reason I was leaving my country for.
Jesus being a refugee makes me feel better though. When he was a baby! He went through lots of tough trials and hardships but that is just incredible, for us! I don’t think I would live if I was a refugee. But since I know that Jesus had been through it I would call on him and know that he would be with me and guide me with every step I take. I appreciate that he went through this because that is him humbling himself and showing how much he loves us even more! He is so humble and loving that he does this all for us which makes me love him even more. It makes me feel closer to him knowing what he does for us. And Jesus a refugee as a baby here, he could not even walk! So let alone flee from Herod who was killing all baby boys two and under. It is one thing to flee as an adult a child at least can run but really? A baby? That just shows how miraculous God is and his wonderful plan to save us all from our sins. He risked his life for us and could have killed himself like that.
