The angel said to the shepherds “…and this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.”
That’s what the shepherds set off in search of: a baby laying a manger, wrapped in swaddling clothes. They found the baby just as the angels said they would. It was at this meeting that they realized they were in the presence of Christ the Savior. They left the place glorifying God.
Be intentional in searching out God’s identifying characteristics in your daily life. Look for truth, love, forgiveness, mercy and grace. Recognizing Jesus’ presence will be reason to have a heart full of praise.
