Where are our shepherds? Who’s doing the herding? Newsflash…the political arena has overstepped their authority and we need to stand-up for our rights!
The shepherds were considered a lowly people. It is Luke’s theme that the lowly are singled out as recipients of God’s blessings and favors. We may be tillers of the soil whose labors are deeply inscribed upon our hands, or we may reside in office buildings in the performance of our work, but it is the humble who receive God’s blessings.
