This time of year, we are surrounded by Christmas music. Music has always been a part of the Christmas story. As you read the Christmas story, you will find that when people hear the news or share the news of God coming to earth in the form of a baby, it is not uncommon for them to break out into song. The first time this happens is when the angel Gabriel appears to Mary and tells her she will be the one to give birth to the Messiah. Her song of praise teaches us a lot about humility.
