The Wise men followed the star in search of the king to be born as a baby. They went with the intention to worship this new king. They first met with the current king expecting he would know and desire to worship the baby as well. The wise men were warned in a dream not to return to King Herod, so they did not obey the king as the dream brought the truth out into the open. Herod’s secret was brought into the light, and the newborn King was spared.
Questions for further thought:
1. Are you better at keeping secrets or telling secrets?
2. Do you have things that need to be brought into the light?
If you have something keeping you awake at night, ask God for direction.
