My Favorite Part of the Christmas Story, the Back Story

From Philippians chapter 2 (NIV):

5 …have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in very nature[a] God, did not consider equality
with God something to be used to His own advantage;
7 rather, He made himself nothing by taking the very
nature[b] of a servant, being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled
Himself by becoming obedient to death—even death
on a cross!
9 Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave
Him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
