Sweet Child Thrilled with His Role in Nativity Scene
One sweet young man was over the moon about the part he had been assigned in his school’s nativity scene, and he couldn’t wait to share the good news.
Christmas is a time when many schools and churches put on Christmas-themed productions. Often, those performances include reenacting the story of Mary and Joseph and the birth of the precious baby Jesus. But as everyone knows, the story of the first Christmas only offers many parts and opportunities for children to shine. So, when working with many children at one time, one will be forced to get creative and invent a role or two so everyone can participate.
A clip posted on YouTube shows a child excitedly relaying the information about the part he was recently given in his school’s nativity reenactment. The little guy was overjoyed about his “classic” part in retelling the first Christmas.
“Guess what I am for the Nativity. I’m a classic one,” the young man says with pure joy and excitement.
A female excitedly responds. She gives a handful of obvious but wrong guesses.
“Classic role, is it? Classic part,” the woman says. “Jesus?”
The young man informs her that she has guessed wrong. “No,” he says.
“One of the three wise men?” the woman guesses next. But she’s incorrect again.
“What are the innkeepers?” she asks. Wrong again.
The child tells her, once again, that he has been given a “classic part.” He seems genuinely baffled as to why she has not guessed it yet.
With a huge smile and a ton of excitement, the child tells the woman what he’ll be doing in the Nativity scene.
“I’m door holder number three,” he says. “I’ll be holding doors.”
“That’s amazing!” the woman answers.
He mentions that he was overjoyed and ready to get to his role when he first learned about it.
“And I was like, ‘I’m a door holder, get in there. Let’s go! Yes!”’ he states.
Luke 2:7: “And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manager; because there was no room for them in the inn.”
