The Visit of the Magi
This story relates
the manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles. The openness and desire to seek
the truth on the part of the Magi stands in contrast to the closed-mindedness
and fear of King Herod and the Jewish leaders. Their actions speak volumes about
their faith. Herod lies and attempts to deceive. The Magi find the King, pay
him homage, and return home.
Prayer: I pray for those whose hearts are hard and
whose minds are closed. I pray that they find the way that leads to you.
