“Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also (Matthew 2:7-8 KJV).”
King Herod, seeking chronological testimony, with a slithering tongue lied between his teeth. Under false pretenses, he sent the magi on their merry way. He was unaware that the God of eternity was in full control of the newborn King’s safety. Jehovah Jireh,(the God that provides) through the Christ child, makes available to all His gift of salvation.
The exchanging of gifts is a time-tested tradition. God gave his Son; wise men presented treasures as a testimony of worshiping the King. “and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts: gold, and frankincense, and myrrh (Matthew 2:11b KJV).” Merry hearts marked time through worshipful giving.
Worship the newborn king! “But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law. To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father (Galatians 4:4-6 KJV).” How foolish to lament lapses in time.
