Ahh, the wise men. Not really sure how accurate the whole wise men thing is, we know they didn’t come until Jesus was well into his toddler years… but they did come.
So, what can we learn from them?
I guess the most important thing is to watch and listen. They didn’t have angels (and frankly, so far, neither have I). Sometimes we have to put a great deal of work into watching and listening to the right cues to find Him. And, it may also take a long time.
They were men of great stature and wealth, again reminding us that to God it doesn’t matter how much money or where we are on the “social ladder”.
But, find him they did, and they gave him great gifts. Hopefully they were helpful to the new little family.
I am grateful for the long-suffering wise men, and how hard they reached to find Him. I know I can work hard and with perseverance I too can find Him.
