Matthew 2:1-12

The openness and desire to seek the truth on the part of the Gentile wise men stands in contrast to the closedmindedness and fear of King Herod and the Jewish leaders. The Magi act on their faith. Herod lies and attempts to deceive. The Magi find the King, pay him homage, and return home.

I pray for those whose hearts are hard and whose minds are closed. I pray that they find the light that will lead them to you.
