"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
(Luke 2:14)

Today's Thought
The birth of the Christ Child, according to the angel's proclamation, was meant to accomplish two separate goals: To bring God glory, and to bring peace to mankind!
First and foremost, God is to receive the glory for this miraculous work of grace and mercy toward mankind. All the works of God are for His glory, however, the redemption of the world is for His highest glory! Regardless of "when" this blessed event took place (as some would contend over precise dates, etc.), the fact remains that it "did" take place, the event for which God is to be glorified . . . with the highest form of glory possible! Praise Him . . . Glorify Him . . . Exalt Him . . . for the wondrous work of the birth of our Redeemer, not just during this
season, but every day of every year!
Secondly, bringing peace to mankind was an act of God's good-will in sending the Messiah for our benefit! All the peace that we have or ever hope to have is a result of God's goodness, mercy, and grace toward us who are so undeserving! But, to truly benefit from this gift of "peace", we must give Him the glory for it! The angels, at the birth of the Christ-child, proclaimed God's peace had graced this world at last . . . now it is up to us to come and partake of it! Peace with God means that mankind is now reconciled with the Holy, Just Creator of all things!
Take time today (and every day!) and repeat the sounding joy of the angelic hosts that memorable night . . . Glory to God in the Highest! He's so worthy of our praise!

Today's Prayer
Father, I love You, I praise You, I adore You! I glorify Your name in all the earth! Not just for the peace that You gave . . . not just for the Gift of eternal life . . . not just for Your goodness, mercy, and grace toward me . . . Father, I glorify You because of Who You are . . . not for any work that You have done! There is truly none like You in all of creation! You are worthy of all glory, honor, and praise! Amen!

Have a blessed day!
