As We Prepare for Epiphany
Wise men and women, like the wise men of the first Christmas, prostrate themselves before Jesus, do him homage, and give themselves to Him. This total abandonment is not a one-time experience, but a way of life forever.
Wise men and women are great-souled individuals who begrudge nothing to God. They’re not looking for the quickest Mass to fulfill their Sunday obligation. Rather, they consider it a privilege to worship the Lord.
Wise men and women consider it a privilege to share their faith in Jesus. Wisdom is not doing the minimum but always searching for new opportunities to abandon ourselves to the love and will of God.
Wise men and women transcend their natural inclinations to selfishness, laziness and fear. They live supernaturally by grace and by faith.
The Lord wants to make you a wise man or a wise woman. Are you willing to become wise, to follow the star, to give all to Jesus?
