In a survey, nearly a third of those questioned stated, that of all the persons mentioned in the Christmas story, they identified the most with the shepherds.
The shepherds were average, ordinary people and were invited to see the birth of the King of kings!
Lk 2:20 (NCV): “Then the shepherds went back to their sheep, praising God and thanking him for everything they had seen and heard. It had been just as the angel had told them.”
