VIDEO Four Nights with the Devil – Another Gift

 

Another Gift

Being divinely warned in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed for their own country another way. Matthew 2:12

How long were the Wise Men on the road? A similar journey by Ezra took four months: “On the first day of the first month he began his journey from Babylon, and on the first day of the fifth month he came to Jerusalem, according to the good hand of his God upon him” (Ezra 7:9). For the Magi it was a roundtrip journey; they returned home by another route.

In addition, then, to giving the Lord their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, the Magi also gave Him the gift of their time.

As the old year passes into history, let’s look back over the months and see if we’ve used our time wisely for the Lord. Our days and hours belong to Him, and we must guard how much time we devote to entertainment, social media, and self-serving activities. Imagine our Lord’s pleasure as we spend more time with Him and for Him during the upcoming year. As we do so, the good hand of our God will be on us.
