Christmas: Us and The Magi

This Christmas is the first Christmas I spent alone and far from home. An urgent reason made me not able to fly back to home. I said “Oh God, it is so sad that I had to be far away from Dad, Mom, and my lil’ bro”. No special food. No friends. I felt terrible.

To stop from crying and feeling alone, then I decided to read again the story about the birth of Jesus. There was one passage that was appealed to me: Matthew 2:1-12. It is about the Magi visit the Messiah. They brought best things to welcomed Jesus.

“On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh

Christmas is always identic with gifts. Unfortunately, most people think the gifts is for them, not for the Lord. Yes, it is for us. When God sent His only Child to this world, it is the greatest gift for all of us. Then, what do we give to greet Jesus? It is His birthday, isn’t it? 🙂

Just like the Magi, let us always bring the best to Jesus who was born and died for us.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS

May God bless you
