Standing next to Christ

Nativity Scene for Breakfast With the Wise Men
I was working on the tables for our annual Breakfast with the Wise Men at church.  Before I left for the day, I set up a nativity scene near the door of the social hall.

As I was sitting the pieces in the stable, I noticed that the lamb is missing an ear. 

I sat the lamb close to Jesus thinking that with its ear-less side next to Jesus, people wouldn't notice its flaw.

We are like that.  One would think that when we stand next to the perfect Christ, we would all look much less than perfect.  Instead, standing next to Christ, we look forgiven.  We look loved.  Standing next to Christ, our flaws are forgiven.
