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 and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
These were wise men that sought out a king, they just had no understanding of what king they were looking for. There gifts were gold something for a real king. Frankincense very expensive perfume. And myrrh ointment that you use to bury someone important. When we are giving our gifts this week how much thought do we put in the gifts we give to Jesus. Our time, money or our heart. What is so valuable to us that we are willing to give back to God.
