"Wise" Men

today's reading.
Matthew 2:1-12   Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem...

As I read about the three wise men today, it kind of hit me that these truly were three "wise" men. I say that because of how they trusted God's leading and continued on their quest even though they didn't have many details and they didn't know how their journey would conclude. They followed the star when they first saw it, they went with the flow when they were called before Herod and questioned, after the meeting with Herod they continued on with their search and journey, and after finding Jesus they followed God's leading and did not return to Herod.

So are you with me that the wise men were, in fact, "wise"? What did you learn from these men about trusting God and God being in control? Tami W.
