Wealth and worship

a sign of wealth

Tuesday, 20 December

And going into the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh. Matthew 2:11

Imagine an event so compelling, so captivating that you would leave your home for years, travel incredible distances, to simply greet its coming. The Magi traveled to acknowledge something not completely understood to them, but that which they knew was worth the journey. But these men who worked among princes, made ready. They did not did not stop with acknowledging Jesus, they fell down and worshipped, they opened their treasures to the Most High God. What worship, what treasures, can we offer our God who has given so much for us?

  1. Love this! I had never considered what a huge commitment it was for them. And indeed we are so blessed, how could we not worship?

  2. My life is his God for he made it. A life of lifting and raising my voice, my words and actions to praiae,to honor and give glory to his mighty name.
    All glory to you, Oh Lord.

    Bless you Heidi💕
