Luke 2:17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child,

This is referring to shepherds who were watching their flocks during the night.  Shepherds were considered to be the lower class of citizens.  God chose to send His angels to this “lower class” of people to be the first to hear the good news of His Son coming to this earth.  What a privilege.  How wonderful they believed the angels and went to find the Christ child.  After they found Him they became the first evangelists.  They went around telling all they could find of God’s Gift to us.  Our question is are we spreading the word concerning what God has and is doing to others?   When is the last time we told someone about Jesus?  Let’s be sure we do it today.  We do not know the time He will come back to this earth.  We must do our part to be sure no one misses it.
