I don’t know how you got into the Christmas spirit this year, but some people in this country decided that they would get into it by going around and stealing the baby Jesus figure from different nativity scenes around town. I don’t know if God reserves special treatment for those who kidnap baby Jesus models or not, but I do know that one particular security company out of New York City dished out some special treatment of their own. Can a thief sink any lower than stealing baby Jesus from under the watchful eyes of Mary, Joseph, and the angels?
When Brickhouse Security discovered that many churches in the area were having trouble keeping baby Jesus in the manger, they decided they were going to come to the rescue. Out of the goodness of their hearts, they decided to give out free GPS units to churches with nativity scenes. The GPS units were then placed inside baby Jesus, unbeknownst to any would-be thieves until the wrath of God fell upon them in the form of flashing lights.
Amber Alerts For Baby Jesus?
When Lt. Dan asked Forrest Gump if he’d found Jesus yet, he may very well have been on to something. Think about this for just a second – what kind of a world do we live in where baby Jesus isn’t even safe to sleep in the manger? What would you even do with Him once you’d stolen Him – drive him around town with you to show off to friends? Take Him to the mall? Drop Him off at the church nursery? Really – what does a person do with a baby Jesus? On second thought, I don’t even want to know.
Hats off to Brickhouse Security who saw a need and decided to do something about it. If I lived in New York, I know who I would call if I had any security issues of my own.
