Put a note in there that says "I know you slept here, if you do it again I'm calling the cops"

Hopefully that will work.... and maybe a paddlock ? .

It's unfortunate I find it necessary to lock the barn these days. How times have changed. When I was little we didn't lock the house.

Perhaps the person was in need of shelter.. There was a time, when we didn't have an issue showing kindness to another human being by letting them sleep in our barns..

It is Christmas after all. Good will towards men.. What would Jesus do?

But that's just me...

There was also a time when we didn't feel the need to be armed, but times change.

Lock the barn and put a note on the door with the address of the nearest homeless shelter.

If all they did was sleep in the barn...and nothing was stolen...what is the harm...as others have said ....showing kindness...is a disappearing virtue

What would Jesus do? Maybe be like the rest of the immigrants - come in, expect everything for doing nothing and then try and change everything to suit his wants.

What's the harm/goodwill... ? Just guessing you don't keep your door open for strangers to just waltz in as they wish. Once turns into twice and soon can easily become a magnet for others (word gets out).

Mary and Joseph were not refugees or homeless. They were going to Joseph's hometown per the census decree. Joseph was a skilled craftsman and would have had a decent to better than average income. I would lock my barn and be alert.

would cause some concern for me. Mary and Joseph had the Inn keepers permission to sleep in the manger, this person/persons did not.
Motion sensor lights, stay armed, and you may want to notify the police just so they are aware.

Unfortunately rendering assistance to others may cause unforeseen problems in today's world.
