[The Shepherds and the Angels] In the same region, shepherds were staying out in the fields and keeping watch at night over their flock. Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid, for look, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people: Today a Savior, who is Messiah the Lord, was born for you in the city of David.
The profession of a shepherd was very low and humble. If you notice that God didn’t reveal His plans to those in high positions or to the religious leaders but to the meekest of hearts. If you want to know God’s plan for your life then live a life of submission before the Lord and He will reveal His plans that are just created for you.
