On Missing the Point

By Richardl @richardlittleda

A warning

It has always struck me that one of the saddest moments in the whole Christmas story is to be found in Matthew’s Gospel.  When the Magi arrive in Herod’s palace and ask where the king of the Jews is to be born, the answer is rapidly found. Without skipping a beat, Herod’s religious advisers tell him ‘In Bethlehem in Judea’.

The question is this: if they knew that to be so – why were they looking the wrong way when the moment came? This is a warning for all of us to search both scripture and circumstance to see what God is doing.

The picture below says it all. Enjoy…
