Today's Advent Passage: Micah 5:2

But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days. - (Micah 5:2 ESV)

Matthew 2:5-6 records that this was fulfilled in Jesus' birth in Bethlehem. Reflect on what it says about God that He chose the city of one of the smallest clans of the tribe of Judah to be the location for His Son to be born.
