The wise men, who sacrificially left their country to worship the Christ child, provide us with an exemplary motivation to sacrifice the world’s pleasures and comforts to follow and serve Christ.
As kids we grow up thinking about what we are going to get at Christmas. We put together our lists and hoped that on Christmas morning we got everything we asked for. It isn’t until later in life that we think more about what others might want for Christmas, what their hopes and desires are. This December we take a look back and see what Christmas presents were offered to God and how we can start to give those same kinds of gifts to him that would fulfill his hopes and desires for our lives.
