Wise men, the Magi or kings from the east, studied the heavens
and when an unusual star appeared, they did some research and
found that a king had come, the Christ. They packed costly gifts in
order to worship this One. Unsure of where to go, they stopped
in Jerusalem and were told to check out Bethlehem. Evidently
Jesus had been living quietly with his parents, unseen, and unknown
for quite some time. King Herod, the Priests and the Scribes were clueless.
The prophesied King had arrived and was living right under their noses,
and they had missed the whole show!
Papa, I want to stay alert, be aware, of what you are doing in our world today.
I don’t want to miss a thing!
