Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him,” (Matthew 2:10, Holy Bible, New King James).
- An old saying, one can only find something when one is looking for it, is the best way to describe the wise men’s daring adventure. They had consistently studied the heavens for signs of a promised Messiah, the King of the Jews. When His star appeared in the skies, these wise men left comforts of home and journeyed to a distant land. Nothing deterred them from their purpose to present treasured gifts to the child Jesus. How far are you willing to go to find Jesus?
- Prayer: Jesus, I have no treasure to give but myself. Here I am, Lord. Amen.
