Strength in numbers

luke2.13-14TUES.001

Have you ever heard the saying, “There’s strength in numbers”? It’s true–lots of voices together make a bigger splash than a single voice. Can you imagine the shepherds’ reaction when a great company of angels began praising God from the heavens? Can you imagine this hurting worlds’ reaction if Christians everywhere began proclaiming Jesus’s name openly and unashamedly? What a change might be wrought if we lost our worry about offending and simply began proclaiming the truth. (Suggested hymn: “Angels We Have Heard on High,” a traditional French carol.)
