Bible Verse - Luke 2:10-11

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

Lesson-Jesus is Born

How did God make sure the shepherd’s would find the baby Jesus?

Last week we learned about John the Baptist, who help pave the way for Jesus. One thing we learned about him was that he ate locusts. We also ate locusts last week. We thought they would be yucky, crunchy, horrible, and bad, but we ended up liking our locusts!
