shepherds.jpgThis is the first reflection of the “40 Days of Hope” from the Max Lucado book “3:16” that a few of my friends and I are doing together. For day one, Max pointed to the night that Christ came to the earth (“An EXTRA-Ordinary Night”). His quote to end the devotional was rich and classic Lucado –

“So he went to the shepherds. Men who don’t know enough to tell God that angels don’t sing to sheep and that messiahs aren’t found wrapped in rags and sleeping in a feed trough.”

I was struck by that line. It reminded me that the more I think I learn about God, the less I probably really know. I was reminded that I think that “the Christian thing to do is …..(insert statement here), when really, I don’t have the first clue what God will do. His way is better. His way is perfect. It might not be the way I drew it up, but you can’t argue with greatness.
