￼If you were a part of a group of people on a trip and you had no idea of the route, the time of arrival or the promised destination…
Would you follow along?
If you were considered wise, considered yourself wise
Would you band together with others wise, Magi, to travel dark countryside led by starlight
To worship a baby? The one you’d been told would be King of Jews?
Would you the lead the way, navigating the positioned flock, forward moving based on positioning of the others?
Like geese on an early autumn morning, focused on promised destination, moving towards the expected.
Being certain of the path and the arrival.
The place where Jesus was born.
There’s much to be said for moving
forward, uncertain and with
moving forward still.
Hurrying towards the Savior, like shepherds following a star.
When the angels left them and had gone I to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about. ” Luke 2:16
Moving towards, drawing more close too, staying there.
Draw me nearer, Lord.
