Angels and Shepherds

Then an angel of the Lord stood before them [shepherds]. The glory of the Lord was shining around them, and they became very frightened. The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I am bringing you good news that will be a great joy to all the people. Today your Savior was born in the town of David. He is Christ, the Lord. “Give glory to God in heaven, and on earth let there be peace among the people who please God.” (Luke 2:9-11, 14 NCV)

It is to the humble and outcast that heaven announces the Savior’s birth. Jesus is a Savior for all people, without exclusion.
