DAILY?READINGS: Nehemiah 4:1-23; Haggai 1:1-15; Revelation 9:1-21

When they saw the young child…[they] fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh. Matthew 2:11

The wise men worshipped the incarnate Christ when they saw Him. What does true worship involve? For them, it was three things: a posture of humilty, a heart’s desire to see and know Him, and the giving of their treasures. Worship for us today should be the same, the right attitude in the presence of God and a heart’s desire to speak to and about Him. —G. Frear

When wise men came seeking for Jesus from afar, With rich gifts to greet Him and led by a star, They found in a stable, the Saviour of men, A manger His cradle, so poor was He then.—Richard Slater
