Matthew 2:1-2 ” After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the East came to Jerusalem and asked, ‘Where is the One who has been born King of the Jews? We saw His star in the East and have come to worship Him.’ “

These three wise men had traveled from a long distance, relying on astrological charts and Old Testament prophecy…following this bright star in the Eastern sky.  And on arriving in Bethlehem, they found the foretold King of the Jews and offered three extravagant gifts worthy of royalty…gold, frankincense, and myrrh.  So on this special day of giving and receiving presents, we also have three gifts we can give the Christ Child.  For Deuteronomy 6:5 tells us to, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.”  These three gifts you have to give are unique only to you…for they comprise who you are…your mind, body, and spirit.  Therefore, they make up the greatest gift you could ever give anyone today…especially the King of Kings.
