I was reading through sections of Luke 2 this morning as part of my devotional readings. I came across the part where the angels had just left the shepherds on the hillside. They decided to go see this child that was spoken about by the angels. The Bible says that they ran to Bethlehem. Once they made a commitment, they immediately followed through with their commitment.
This reminds me of another time in scripture when a man ran. "But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him." Luke 15:20 This is the parable of the Prodigal Son. His father ran to him when he saw him returning in the distance.
How quick are we to respond when we feel the Lord's prompting? Do we hesitate and question, or do we run?
