Christmas Gifts (2)

There have been many bad storms in America this year. On the news people have talked about houses that were damaged, trees that fell down and street signs that were blown away. After a storm is over, it may be hard to drive through a town that was hit by the storm. Familiar landmarks are gone and there are no street signs to show the way.

Some wise men from the east studied the stars and learned that Jesus had been born. They wanted to worship Jesus and bring Him some gifts. How did the wise men know how to find Jesus? God used a star in the sky to lead them to the place where Jesus was living.

Matthew 2:11 tells us what the wise men did when they found Jesus. “The wise men came to the house where the child was with his mother Mary. They bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened the boxes of gifts they had brought for him. They gave him treasures of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.”

God gave the wise men a star to lead them to Jesus. God has given us the gift of His Word to show us how we can know Jesus and accept Him as our Lord and Savior. Thank God for His Word today!
