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.’ “

The wise men came searching from afar.  They had discovered that magnificent new star in the night sky and determined it was a sign…a sign of royalty.  And so they began their journey  of discovery.  So what are you searching for today?  Peace, truth, comfort, hope?  There is only one place to find what you’re looking for, and it’s in the Name of Jesus Christ…for He’s what you’re ultimately looking for.  Nothing in the world will ever  compare to Jesus and the love He has for you.  And just like the Magi, your quest can conclude by bowing down and worshipping the Messiah.

Proverbs 29:11 ” A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.”

When we allow the flesh to take over, a simple irritation can quickly snowball into a raging outburst that can cause irreparable damage to all parties involved. When an unwise person allows their anger out in inappropriate ways, it can escalate and lead to major problems. A wise man keeps himself under control…he keeps himself still and restrained…and at all times, in command of his flesh.
