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. – Matthew 2:10-11 (NIV)
The wise men worshipped Christ through bringing Him gifts fit for a king. Obviously, Christ did not need these gifts, though He was deserving of every single one of them. Few of us have gold, frankincense, or myrrh to give Christ, but what can you give Him? How can you be with Christ this season and the rest of your life? What talents and gifts do you have to devote to Christ and the Kingdom of God? Do you have spare time? Do you have a servant’s heart to pour into your church or a local ministry? Do you have a hobby you can somehow glorify God with?
