January 6th- Blessed Feast of the Epiphany!
Today we celebrate the “Feast of the Epiphany” also known as the “Feast of the Wise Men”.
We do not know who these “Wise Men from the East” were, but we do know they traveled a long distance and gave up a great deal of time to find the King of Kings. They came bringing the best of what they had; and when they found Him, they disclosed their finest to the One that the star told them was the King of the Jews. Just as God had given His best, they gave what were the most expensive gifts of their day. They brought gold for prosperity, frankincense for sweetness and atmosphere, and myrrh as a preservative symbolizing his ability to overcome even the worst of times…even death. They brought their finest to the Finest- shouldn’t we do the same?
