Today we will continue talking about the wise men. Verse 11 of our Bible Reading tells us, “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.”
The wise men were well-educated men. They were also wealthy. They had to be wealthy in order to give such expensive gifts to Jesus. But it is interesting that these educated and wealthy men “bowed down” and worshiped a young child. These men were wise enough to know that Jesus was worthy of their honor, respect and worship. They were also wise enough to humbly bow before Him.
I pray that you and I will be like these wise men. I hope that we will recognize that Jesus is worthy of our praise, adoration and worship. Let’s humble ourselves before Jesus Christ and worship and adore Him today!
