When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
May we give as the Savior gave. To give of oneself is a holy gift. We give as a remembrance of all the savior has given. May we also give gifts that have eternal value, along with our gifts that eventually break or are forgotten. How much better the world would be if we all gave gifts of understanding and compassion, of service and friendship, of kindness and gentleness. As the Christmas season envelops us with all it’s glory, may we, as did the Wise Men, seek a bright, particular star to guide us in our celebration of the saviors birth. May we all make the journey to Bethlehem in spirit, taking with us a tender, caring heart as our gift to the savior.
