Wise Men - Matthew 2:1-12

Sometimes, a “thin place” takes us places we never expect. That’s what happened to the wise men who followed the star to Bethlehem. They made the long journey, paid respect, worshipped the Christ child, and then went home “by another way” (2:12).

King Herod thought they were doing his bidding, so he could locate Jesus and his family and destroy him. But, God warned the magi in a dream not to return and report to Herod. Any time God speaks, it’s a “thin place.” Don’t miss his voice. Don’t let anything or anyone distract you or drown out the Lord’s words.
