Luke 2:10 - 14 (Pt. 3)  Thought/Prayer:  Swaddling Then and Now.  Topics:  2 at end.

“And the angel said to them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign to you; You shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”  (AKJV)  (Read these scriptures and more at 

The Baby in the manger-crib was swaddled in cloths.  He was tightly wrapped up by His mother and earthly legal father, Mary and Joseph.  We’re told this right in this scripture passage about His birth.  And, interestingly, there is a lot being said about swaddling two millennia later.  Yes, swaddling a newborn is still in vogue – but with some advice on the proper way to accomplish it.

We know that a newborn baby, at birth, is suddenly thrust into a new, big, open, airy world, the world of planet Earth.  And, of course, this means that the close confines of Mother’s womb are no longer there. Until birth, the baby exists within the walls of the womb and its warmth and closeness.

Enter:  Swaddling.

Swaddling a new life can recreate some of the warmth of the womb and give a feeling of safety in this big, airy, unfamiliar world.  It brings to the child the tightness of being wrapped, surrounded, just as within the walls of the womb, creating a familiar feeling, that of security.  Today a blanket is usually the wrap of choice.

We now know that there are best ways to do this in order to protect a baby’s hips and to prevent a little one from getting tangled up in the blanket should the baby wiggle out of turn over as they get older.

Since we do know for sure that Baby Jesus was swaddled, we have a connection to babies today.  We who support mothers who find themselves unexpectedly pregnant and worried or scared may possibly find a way to speak of the Baby Jesus and His being wrapped securely.  This could possibly speak to a worried, scared woman if she can have the mind-image of the baby in the manger who was loved and protected from the cold by warm cloths wrapped around.

Topics:  Pray for worried, scared moms-to-be and help them to see the wonderful opportunity there is to love and protect a baby – theirs, just as the Lord Jesus was, in a manger, swaddled.
