Happy Christmas: a timely blessing
When Jesus was born a little over 2015 years ago the event was remarkable in many ways. One way was that people from different backgrounds and beliefs all wanted to see him. The Shepherds came from nearby, the Wise men came from far away. This Christmas time for people close to God and those far away, it’s time for Christ to be born in our hearts.
The wise men came to the house where the baby was. They saw the baby with his mother Mary. The wise men bowed down and worshiped the baby. The wise men opened the gifts they brought for the baby. They gave the baby treasures of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. But God warned the wise men in a dream. God warned them not to go back to Herod. So the wise men went home to their own country a different way. (Matthew 2:1-12)
