Nehemiah 9:1-38; Zechariah 5:1-6:15; Revelation 14:1-20

And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. Luke 2:20

The shepherds had heard the angel’s message of joy. They had seen the Babe lying in the manger—Christ the Lord! As they headed back to their fields and flocks, their souls were filled with worship. When God is glorified, honour is ascribed to His Name. His attributes and acts are extolled and He is acknowledged for who He is! Let us today follow the example of these humble men and truly glorify our God, for all that we have “heard and seen”, concerning the Saviour who came. —Pete Smith

All glory be to God on high, and to the earth be peace;
Goodwill henceforth from heaven to men begin, and never cease. —N. Tate
