When I get good news, I want to share it.
So it is with the shepherds who rush to find Mary and Joseph in the nearby manger, seeing that the Christ child is born just as they were told by the angel.
The shepherds worship God, praising Him for His gift of salvation in progress.
Then, they go out to tell others of the good news. This is a natural inclination of people — the desire to share the good we have found in our lives. The best sharing is that which emerges from within; not an artificial trumpeting, but a soft voice saying, ‘Look here at what great event has happened among us! Come and see for yourself!’
‘Jesus is born!’
