Dear Friends and Family (Ohana):
“…they saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell to the ground and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” (Matthew 2:11 NASB). Worship always precedes the giving. Notice the wise men worshiped the Christ child…THEN, they gave out of their treasure. Plus, what I noticed is that they arrived prepared to give. They didn’t have to go get their gifts, they brought it with them.
Who you worship is who you give to. If a person worships self, then the person gives their best to self. If a person worships God, they give their best to God. Worship directs a person’s giving. These wise men did the right thing, in the right order and God blessed them. Scripture goes on to say that God warned them in a dream, and saved their lives.
Let us come prepared to worship the Christ Child and give our best to Him this Christmas! Our Savior is born! Happy Birthday Jesus!
