The Arrival

The shepherds were the first group of people that God revealed the Messiah to. They were lower middle-class and yet he shared with them first. I love that element of the story but then I kept thinking about it and I envisioned the first shepherd to arrive on scene and the insecurities he probably had about approaching the King of Kings. I can only imagine the insecurity of this young boy and yet he was welcome to come and be with the King. An incredible invitation!
