Jesus came to us in an obscure part of this world in the midst of social outcasts, yet a couple of millennia later it is his birthday we celebrate, not the birthday of the one who thought he was a gift to the world. Instead, the One whose birthday was truly a gift to the world do we remember.
Therefore, a gift as amazing as Jesus is worthy to be shared, talked about, and get excited about. We should all take a note from the shepherds. They were so moved and so overwhelmed by what they had witnessed they couldn’t be quiet. Their social status and insecurities were no match for their excitement. Our hope is that the reminder of God’s goodness seen through the gift of Jesus would overwhelm you to the point you cannot be quiet.
