“Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people”– Luke 2:10 (CEV)


The shepherds were not considered important people, but God chose them to hear the good news of Jesus’ birth. The shepherds heard the message, believed it, looked for and found Jesus, praised God, and told people. We can learn from the shepherds about how to respond to God. 


The angels sang, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace.” Name three things you can do this week to show glory to God or be a peace maker.
