Luke 2:8-20

The last thing we know about the shepherds in Jesus’ birth story is that they were praising God.  The angel had told them that a Savior, Christ the Lord had been born.

Since the shepherds were so excited about Jesus, I wonder if they sought updates on Him.  Maybe they were even present for Jesus’ celebratory entry to Jerusalem.  Going from Bethlehem to Jerusalem would be about six miles.

Even if the shepherds weren’t at Jerusalem during that time of praise, they’re surely in Heaven praising Him.  As we head into the New Year, let’s share the past and likely current enthusiasm of the shepherds for Jesus!
