Decisive moments

It takes one-tenth of a second for us to judge someone and make a first impression.

Scary. Wearing mismatching clothes? Forgot to brush your teeth? Having a bad hair day? You are out of luck, for nothing is scarier than a first impression fail. By all standards, Jesus didn’t have an impressive arrival in this world: He was born from an unmarried woman in a barn. His first visitors were lowly shepherds. He walked his first steps as a refugee in Egypt. He grew up in a working-class home with a carpenter as a father. This was not a glorious beginning. Then why did he make, and continues to make, a good impression on thousands of people around the world? Perhaps because, for the first time, we’ve felt that through Jesus, God has genuinely met us on our level.
