The wise men really were wise to go all that way and to all that trouble to see Jesus, weren’t they?
If you want to see him in this time and in this place, all you have to do is to turn your eyes and your heart a little bit and he’s right there. Odd as it seems, though, doing that seems to be harder than what the wise men had to do.
God, give us
the desire to see Jesus,
the drive to see Jesus, and
the desperation to see Jesus
that will turn our eyes and our hearts—that will turn our lives—to him.
“In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem…” (Matthew 2:1).
