Scripture: Matthew 2:8-9
Then Herod sent them to Bethlehem, saying, “Go and search diligently for the child; and when you have found him, bring me word so that I may also go and pay him homage.” When they had heard the king, they set out; and there, ahead of them, went the star that they had seen at its rising, until it stopped over the place where the child was.
Thought for the Day: The Buddha spoke of how the wise are diligent, and how diligence is the way to life. I think the same idea is found within Christianity as story after story portrays those who were willing to sacrifice so much in their tenacious search for the Source of Life. The magi (wise men) from the East left behind everything and traveled into the complete unknown with a starry hope as their only guide, yet they did so willingly. For those of us at Cypress Creek Christian Church, we will need the diligence of the magi as we find ourselves following a starry hope into the complete unknown.
Prayer: We go with faith, O Lord, and not much else… yet we believe you will be present in both the destination and the journey. Amen.
