Sacrifice and Great Joy
When we see the devotion of other people it can sometimes put us to shame, but also spur us on to new heights of devotion ourselves.
I’m thinking about the wise men who traveled many days to follow the star which would lead them to the king of the Jews.
The Scripture says “And when they found Him they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy”.
So their great sacrifice ended not just in joy, but exceedingly great joy!
May the devotion of the wise men inspire in us a willingness to sacrificially seek and serve the Lord and to be surprised by the great joy we receive.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!
