As you gather with family and loved ones, take time to read the account of the Nativity together!
There is no indication of angelic GPS or even verbal directions to guide the shepherds to the manger. There is also no mention of confusion or frantic discussion about an extensive search for the baby.
Temple shepherds were the first to hear the angelic announcement of Jesus’ birth. The angel’s message brought overwhelming joy to the shepherds because their knowledge of Scripture undoubtedly included the prophecies concerning the Messiah.
Contrary to artistic depictions, no aura, halo or nimbus distinguished Jesus from any other human baby!
