Wise Men Follow the Star

The word ‘star’ is something we are very familiar with. In this post, i am not referring to the astronomical object. I mean people who enjoys wide recognition. We know them. They have a huge presence. Many of them have millions following them on social medias. Some people refer to them as idols. Even if i personally have an issue with calling people idols, some of them have done really well for themselves and worked very hard. There are certain things we can sure emulate from their followers who follow them faithfully.

One of the most beautiful moments in the nativity story was when the star appeared to the wise men and their obedience in following the star. The people of the world, follow their stars diligently. Their lives are in tune with that of their stars.

The wise men were called wise for a reason. They trusted in the leading of the star. They knew that the star was going to lead them to the place they needed; the place where Jesus Christ laid.

They followed the star. They were wise.

Another way i viewed this is that there is something in us that shines which i will like to link with a star. Another word for this is gift. God has deposited gifts in us all. Where is your gift leading you? Where is your star leading you? Wise men follow their stars diligently and avoid the distractions of Herod. They block their ears against the directions and leading of the voices they don’t need as they stay in tune with the Holy Spirit who speaks to them.

When we follow our star faithfully, it will lead it to King Jesus.
