epiphany, 2024

“When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.  On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him.  Then they opened their treasures to him and presented him gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh.” Matthew (2:10-11)

Did you ever wonder why the Magi and the shepherds were able to notice God showing up in the world, and the kings and rulers and leaders were not?  Is it because the people in positions of power and influence were just too busy to notice?  Were they too consumed with their own kingdoms to pay attention to God’s?  Were they too distracted by what they were up to, to care about what God was up to?

I guess the moral of the story is: Don’t get so consumed with your life and your world and your struggles that you lose sight of your God.  That is the surest way to miss what he is up to.

Lord Jesus, epiphany is all about seeing you.  Help us to do just that.  Help us to live our lives in such a way that when you do show up, we notice, we worship, and we open our treasures to you.
