Yesterday we talked about the wise men being wealthy. These men probably had a lot of possessions, but they were not selfish. They didn’t keep all they had to themselves.
Instead of being selfish, the wise men were generous — very generous! Remember the gifts that they gave to Jesus? They gave gold, frankincense and myrrh. We all know that gold is expensive. And frankincense and myrrh were very valuable spices. These men were willing to give costly gifts to a young child.
God has blessed all of us in many ways. Some of us have great wealth and possessions. Others have talents and skills. God expects each of us to use these blessings for His kingdom.
Think about the ways God has blessed you. Thank God for these blessings. Then think about ways you can share these blessings with other people.
