Thought for the Day: For centuries, people have tried to determine what these gifts represented. There is some interesting speculation, but putting it all aside, we can make the basic conclusion that the gifts represented a lot of money. No one had gone to the Dollar Store to see what was on the sale rack. With that in mind, there is an underlying question put before any reader of this story: What gift of real value will I present. It may not be of great monetary value, but sacrifice is assumed. It was not gold, frankincense and a bottle of cheap aftershave. What is it that you bring to the work of Christ in this new year?
Prayer: Holy God, as the child and mother received the gifts, we hear an unspoken invitation to bring with us an offering of substance, gifts by which the world will be touched with your breath-taking love, kindness and goodness. Amen.
