‘They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.’ (Matt 2:11). On this Christmas Day, may we worship God anew, as we offer him the gifts of our time, our love and our whole lives.

When it was time to leave, they returned to their own country by another route, for God had warned them in a dream not to return to Herod. (Matt 2:11). This Christmas Season, may our encounters with Jesus cause us to choose a different way, so that we might experience the fullness of life that he offers.
