Reading from One Incredible Moment:

Do you ever wonder why the announcement of Jesus' birth first went to the shepherds?

They didn't ask God if he was sure he knew what he was doing.

Had the angel gone to theologians, they would have first consulted their commentaries. Had he gone to the elite, they would have looked around to see if anyone was watching. Had he gone to the successful, they would have first looked at their calendars.

So he went to the shepherds. Men who didn't have a reputation to protect or an ax to grind or a ladder to climb. Men who didn't know enough to tell God that angels don't sing to sheep and that messiahs aren't found wrapped in rags and sleeping in a feed trough.

You can see the world standing tall, but to witness the Savior, you have to get down on your knees.


while the theologians were sleeping
and the elite were dreaming
and the successful were snoring,
the meek were kneeling.

They were kneeling before the One only the meek will see. They were kneeling in front of Jesus.

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. {Matthew 5:5}
