The Magi who traveled far to see the Christ child surely talked long into the nights as they shared their journey. Did they speculate as to what the coming of the King of Kings could mean to the earth? Did their hearts and minds receive a gradual unfolding and illumination of the blessed Incarnation?
And after they found him, after they knelt before him and looked into his sweet face, did they experience a sudden revelation, a life-altering epiphany?
What about the lives you and I lead? Are we not much like those Magi?
Consider how we walk this life of faith with the love of God continuing to unfold before us and within us. Consider how we have discussed in church and over our own kitchen tables the ways in which God has revealed God’s self to us.
Ponder in your hearts how we continue to live by faith, going forward until that day when we will each finally see Jesus face to face.
