Glorifying and praising God
Father, as you fill my heart with your love, may it overflow into the lives of those around me. Make my life a testimony to the grace and mercy found in your son.
Read Luke 2:17-20
17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
The shepherds rushed to see the baby, just as the angel told them. The shepherds returned glorifying and praising God. Then they told others, and not only that they had seen a baby; they spread the word about what they had been told about him—they had seen the Messiah!
