My scripture this week comes from Matt 2:
7. Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.
9 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.
10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
11 ¶And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
There is much that we can learn from the wise men especially of their diligence in seeking the Savior even during their long journey to find him. The Wise Men, like many of us, are seeking the Savior and bringing our gifts and talents with us, and I can promise that we can find him if we continue diligently and hearken to the signs that are presented to us along the way, much like the star guided these wise men.
Have a MERRY Christmas!
