Wise Guys Took The Right Action

So what do you do when you meet a king? Well, these wise guys knew their encounter was with no ordinary king. Worship was followed by gifts. Gifts to a king, especially the King of Kings, are not offered because the king is in need, but to demonstrate allegiance, loyalty, and willingness to sacrifice.

The wise men again offer us a great example. Our worship of Christ is deficient and stunted if we do not follow it with obedience and offerings. Gold, frankincense, and myrrh are in short supply in most every city town and home. And for some, dollars are rather rare as well. But our opportunity is clear. Giving is not only a part of our Christmas tradition, it is a vital part of our relationship with Christ the king. Don't short change yourself. Make giving, to the church and to others, a part of your life.

FOR TODAY: Give.
