A message for terrified shepherds

Sorry for a few days of silence; away in Paris. On Day Fourteen we meditate on the shepherds being told by dazzling angels that Messiah has come. Why should they believe this amazing story? Why would angels tell such humble people as them that Messiah had just been born? Yet they believed and they acted.

Are you good at thinking things through as you proceed on your spiritual journey? Is it time for you to act, to go to your Bethlehem and see what God has been talking to you about? When God speaks, He wants us to hear Him, to listen and obey. The shepherds are part of the Christmas story because that is exactly what they did.
