Matthew 2:8-11 He (King Herod) sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.” 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 to 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.
Do you feel as if you have been following the star for the past month? Our pilgrimage to the manger is almost complete. It is a busy time of preparation in which many spend more time in a mall than in a church. How will you spend your week preparing for the celebration of Christ’s birth? Just like I told Hannah during her college finals last week – stay focused and finish strong. You’ve got this!
Don’t loose focus of the star leading you to Christ. Enjoy your journey to the manger!
