About finding God
Matthew 2:1 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem 2 and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews?
There is no greater quest in life than the search for God. In spite of many hardships, trials, and tribulations, our world seems not so intent upon finding Him. The wonderful Magi, who had traveled from afar, came searching for the baby, not to get something from Him, but to give something to Him. In each of our lives, we can most quickly find God when we seek to give to Him rather than trying to get something from Him. It is the example of giving that we see flow through Christ's life culminating in His giving of His life for us on the Cross. As we give this Christmas season, let us remember that to truly find and keep God alive within our hearts we must not go seeking to get something from Him. As we give this Christmas season, let us remember to give to Him and for Him. God is found in His giving Love. God is found in His giving Love, resting quietly in a manger where livestock surveyed the wonder of His birth.
