ODBD December New Release Reminder

Good morning!

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs December Release, here is the card I created using The Beatitudes. This card serves as a gift as well, the Beatitudes are stamped on a card that is removable so the recipient can display the card on a desk or on the wall or wherever they want a reminder of the words of Jesus.
 For more inspiration using the December Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog.
Remember to visit each designer's blog site (links below) and leave a little love wherever you go!!

 Inside I have a small message of thanks and I could also enclose a letter if wanted (Pennant Flag Verses and Pennant Flags).

This view shows the pocket better.  I glued the short side and the bottom to form the pocket. Now my Z Fold card is a pocket card. I can give my insert Beatitudes as a gift to be used as a bookmark or whatever they like.

Matthew 2:4-6New King James Version (NKJV)

4 "And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.
So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:

‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,

Are not the least among the rulers of Judah;
For out of you shall come a Ruler

Who will shepherd My people Israel.’[a]

Just a thought
Considering the Pharisees, scribes and priest knew the word of God so well, you would have thought that they would not forget the census that took place 33 years or so before and the fact that all the Jews were required to register at each tribes ancestral land...why then did they not ask questions as to WHEN Jesus was born instead of dismissing Him?  Could it be that they were comfortable with the status quo and did not want upheaval, which the Messiah WOULD have brought if they had embraced Him.
We need to ask ourselves if we are embracing all that God has for us or are we comfortable and don't really want change in our lives or the unpleasantness that might accompany following hard after God.  

Thanks for visiting!
