I'm writing this a few hours before midnight and on CHRISTmas eve. I've gotten into the habit of capitalizing Christ in CHRISTmas since it is His birthday we are celebrating during December so we might as well emphasize the birthday celebrant's name. One of the messages I listened to regarding CHRISTmas is how it was very costly from a divine perspective since this was the ultimate CHRISTmas gift: the Father sending His Son to die for the sins of mankind. I can also think of the sacrifices many people have to go through during this season: the gifts, the trips, the effort, the time. We all do many sorts of things to demonstrate our commitment to people everyday but all these things are amplified during the CHRISTmas season. I could not but help but think about the journey of the Magi or the Wise Men as they understood that a King was going to be born in Judea yet they did not yet know where Bethlehem was. They set out on a journey of adoration going to a place they didn't even know. They had to reach Herod's court in Jerusalem to get directions for Bethlehem. The estimated journey is approximately about two years - this is one costly sacrificial journey to find a King that they only got guidance from the Star of Bethlehem. How many us today would be willing to make such costly sacrifice?
