31 Days of the Christmas Story from Genesis to John: Day 29 – Wise Men worship Jesus

And there it was—the star they had seen in the east!  It led them until it came and stopped above the place where the child was.  When they saw the star, they were overjoyed beyond measure.  Entering the house, they saw the child with Mary His mother, and falling to their knees, they worshiped Him.  Then they opened their treasures and presented Him with gifts: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.  And being warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their own country by another route. – Matthew 2:9-12

Let us worship Jesus the way the Wise Men did.  They gave Him their treasures which they had brought on their trip (fully expecting to see the Messiah).  They believed, they sought Him, they recognized who He was, they humbled themselves, and they obeyed God rather than man.  They were truly wise, and we can be also.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
But fools despise wisdom and instruction. – Proverbs 1:7

* Happy New Year *
