{6 Days until Christmas}

Read Together

They told everyone what had been said to them about the little child. And all who heard it were amazed (wondered) at the things told them by the shepherds. The shepherds went back to work, glorifying and praising God for everything that they had heard and seen. Luke 2:17-18, 20

Discuss Together

When something wonderful happens to you, you want to tell others the good news! Maybe you got a new puppy or made a new friend at school. That is how the shepherds felt after they saw Baby Jesus. The men were so happy. They had heard the angels singing, they had just seen a wonderful baby, lying in a manger in a stable, just as the angels had told them. The shepherds were thankful to God for everything they had seen and heard. They were thankful to be a part of this wonderful night. As they went back to work, they told everyone they saw the good news that Baby Jesus was born.
