And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear.And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
Luke 2:8-10 ESV
God chose to announce Christ's birth to shepherds. In that day shepherds were lowly and disrespected. Yet this is who God chose to seek out early to proclaim Christ's birth, not kings or people in high places. God seeks the lowly. You don't have to do anything special to receive His love. Just accept it!
