Behold The Lamb

Shepherds were on the lowest rung of society, they were ceremonially unclean, and theirs was even known as the illegitimate profession. So, why did God select these individuals to be the first to learn of the birth of Jesus?

God’s Stabilizer

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. -Isaiah 26:3 If you fly long enough, you’ll eventually experience turbulence. It’s uncomfortable at best, terrifying at worst as the plane bounces up and down, shakes, and even takes severe drops. But the truth is, planes are made to handle turbulence.
