In the first part of this blog, think of at least two reasons God signaled the Wise Men all the way from Mesopotamia and didn’t communicate to priests.
First, the priests wouldn’t even make the 16 mile trip from Jerusalem to Bethlehem. While the Magi traveled hundreds of miles to see him. Second, the priests were as troubled by the news as Herod—not good company for religious men. Stoked with anticipation, the entire message of Christ’s birth brought JOY, PEACE and FORGIVENESS to the Wise Men. Why would God waste all that on those TROUBLED when hearing it?
God is always anxious to teach us, but the ones most ready to learn are those anxious to be taught! End Part III
