But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord. “ Luke 2:10-11

“To you.” Don’t you love seeing that on a Christmas present? To: your name. It means someone thought about you. It means you are about to receive something, a gift, hopefully a good one. The angels announced to the shepherds that they were receiving a gift from God that first Christmas eve.
That means God was thinking of them. The shepherds, the nobody’s, the easily forgotten, the night workers, the ordinary, the average, the ones who slept outside. To you is born this day.  
As you celebrate Christmas, keep this in mind. God is thinking about you. Christmas is about a gift given to you. And the gift is not a something, but a someone! How might you respond to that?
