Luke 2:20 “The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.”
I always feel like one of the shepherds at Christmas time. In awe of the splendor of the angels’ announcement, amazed at the spectacle of God as a baby boy, dumbfounded and humbled as to why a deity would care about me, and yet excited to know I can now live a life of purpose. Our lives need to resemble the shepherds, especially since we now know the complete story of Christmas. Praise Him, glorify Him and spread the Good News in both words and actions. Be thankful for all your blessings, share with those less fortunate, and be calm in the peace only a loving God can give.
