25 Gifts of Christmas – Day 20

Today, my gift to you is a shepherd. Not exactly a glamorous job in Biblical times … or today for that matter. It is definitely one of solitude, enduring the weather, and probably a bit smelly. Shepherds represented the lowliest of folks in the day of Jesus’ birth; and yet God sent a host of angels to bring them the news … first. I take great comfort in knowing that God’s gift — His Son — was meant for ALL people. I don’t have to have a title, wealth, or royal lineage to receive His gift. The angel told the shepherds: “I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people.” That is good news! Merry Christmas!
