Good morning.


God often operates differently from the world’s perspective. He doesn’t honor people for the same reasons the world honors them. He values faithfulness over fame and humility over power.


On the night of Christ's birth, instead of revealing it first to kings or world leaders, God sent an angel to tell common shepherds.

"And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified."

(Luke 2:8‭-‬9)


Shepherds were of low social status, but they were faithful devoted workers, living next to their sheep and caring well for the things they’d been entrusted to steward. And God chose them to be the first recipients of the greatest news in history.


Sometimes we feel unimportant or overlooked. But even when we feel our task is small, we give it everything we’ve got. God is looking for people who will be faithful with little so that He can entrust them with more. Don’t be discouraged! We do whatever we have been assigned to do with all our might. God sees our diligence and rewards those who faithfully complete their assignment.


"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters" (Colossians 3:23)


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
