June 21, Luke 2:8-21 And what were you boys doing in the field?

We've heard this story many times too, the shepherds were keeping their flocks and a host of angels came to them. Just think about this for a moment, the nature of man has not changed in the thousands of years. At that time there hasn't been a prophet for over 400 years in Israel. So let's change the place and time a bit to add some perspective. Imagine it's June 21 2017 and you're a shepherd just outside of Tulsa. You see a heavenly host of angels singing praises and they give you a message. So when you get to town what do the people ask? Where did you find the moonshine and mushrooms? If you tell too many people this and the local police might get involved. I imagine the response to the shepherds in Bethlehem was similar, you boys been smoking something with them sheep? I see a sense of humor in this. But there is a key element involved with God, faith. That was then and still is now. The shepherds believed what they saw and had faith to see it revealed. Maybe some people they spoke to believed them. I wonder today if we didn't have the whole story would we believe?
