Wise Men Still Seek Him...
The presents have been unwrapped...
The Christmas cookies are just about gone...
The relatives have gone home, or you have gone home...
Christmas is over. For some of us that brings a sense of relief. For others, it's a reason to look forward to the festivities of next Christmas.
If you look at most nativity scenes, you'll see the shepherds and the wise men worshiping baby Jesus alongside Mary, Joseph and a variety of barn animals. If you read the text in the Bible, however, you'll see that the wise men didn't show up to offer their gifts to Jesus until he was a child.
Matthew 2:9-11 says, "After the Wise Men had listened to the king, they went on their way. The star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them. It finally stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were filled with joy. The Wise Men went to the house. There they saw the child with his mother Mary. They bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures. They gave him gold, frankincense and myrrh.
What a joy it was for the Wise Men to seek after the baby Jesus. Just because Christmas is over, that doesn't mean we should stop seeking Him. Here at Foundations Christian School, it's our prayer that you will continue to be diligent in seeking after Jesus. He's waiting to hear from you!
We hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and we wish you a blessed New Year!
