"Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him." Matt. 2:2
There are two great goals of life. These and all truly wise men have taken them as their great ambition. First we must find him. Then we must mind him. The magi followed the star over great distances on a quest driven by the question: WHERE? Where is the king?
Although Herod looked like a king, and even held the title "King of the Jews," the wise men knew better.
They were looking for more.
Most are satisfied when fooled by the Herods of this world.
We often settle for something less than God.
Their quest was to find him.
Finding him is only the first part. First we must find him, then we must mind him. Herod wanted to find him (2:8), but he was certainly not willing to mind him.
Many will open their Bibles, attend church services, and listen to sermons who will not find him. because God knows they will not mind him. Trust and Obey today.
If thy light shall lead the way
And guide me to thy Son
Then I shall bow my head and pray
In me thy will be done
