In light of their sins, the descendants of David were like a tree which would soon be stumped. Now the question had to be, "How will God ever fulfill the promise He made to send a Savior?" – since He promised He would come from David's line. It seemed as if these Christmas plans were dashed. Isaiah tells us what makes God's gift of mercy so remarkable! In fact, it's even worth singing about.
