Luke 2:7 ” And she gave birth to her first-born son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the Inn.”

Due to the census, all the places for weary travelers to lodge were full.  I wonder if the Inn Keeper, in a attempt to appease a desperate father-to-be and a obviously very pregnant woman, offered the barn as a way to pacify his own  guilty conscious?  Or was it just a after thought to get them away from the front door of the establishment?  But God knew exactly where His Son was to be born…with no onlookers, no mid-wives…only lowly animals to serve as witnesses to the greatest event in history.
