Reading: Matthew 2: 1-12
The twelve days of Christmas are over and we will have arrived at Epiphany. Epiphany marks when the wisemen came to visit the Christ Child. They were traveling through the desert, following a star that would lead them to a king.
The wisemen put great faith in that star. They trusted that it would show them the way. In the days of slavery in the United States, slaves would travel the underground railroad to freedom. They, too, followed a star– the constellation “The Big Dipper.” It showed them the way to the north.
Just like the wisemen and slaves trusted stars to lead them, we must trust God to lead us on our earthly journey. We must put our full faith in God to show us the straight and narrow path to take. Pray that God will guide you all the days of your life. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Watch this video of the songs, “When They Saw the Star They Rejoiced.”
