17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
I get so excited when I good news! I just can’t keep it a secret. In fact, Christmas time can be quite difficult for me because I can’t wait to give out presents.
Do you have anyone like that in your family?
I can’t say I know why I’m like that other than, good news tends to stir in my heart, lift my spirit and leave me encouraged.
I believe the shepherds felt this way. The depth of their commitment to the news and birth of the new king left them utterly unable to be silent. They had to tell people about the greatest news anyone had ever heard in history. The Savior had been born.
