KING BECOMES A PEASANT

King James V of Scotland would on occasion lay aside the royal robe of king and dress as a peasant. In disguise, he could move freely about the land, making friends and entering into their difficulties, appreciating their handicaps, sympathizing with them in their sorrow. When as king he sat again upon the throne, he was better able to rule over them with fatherly compassion and mercy. In the incarnation, God shares in human experience and thereby is better able to accept man.

(From a sermon by Stephen Sheane, God with Us, 12/15/2009)
