THOUGHTS FOR SUNDAY ~ THE WISEMEN
Matthew 2:9-12 "After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming into the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh. And having been warned in a dream no to go back to Herod, they returned to their country another route."
Dear Lord, You were protecting you son in every way. Wisemen journeyed long and hard to follow the star of promise to come and worship the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. To bring him costly treasures from afar. And they had ears to hear when they had the dream, and hearts to obey and travel home a different route. What conversations they must have had as they traveled back to their country. You came for the Lost...those of lowest estate, and Kings from a far country. You came for me. I bow in worship today to my Savior, my Lord, the King of Kings. I love You. Amen.
