Advent Day 19

The Wise Men find Jesus

Read: Matthew 2:9-12

Special verse:  And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh. – Matthew 2:11

Discuss: The star was on the move again and the wise men followed.  They followed the star out of the big city, through the small town of Bethlehem to a tiny house.  Was this a mistake?  Why would a king live here?  Have you thought about how BIG and MIGHTY God is?  But here He is on Earth as a tiny, poor, helpless baby.  Herod is mistaken.  This King didn’t come to be the boss.  He came to be a servant.  When the wise men saw Jesus they fell down and worshiped him, and gave him precious gifts.  If you could give baby Jesus a gift, what would you give him?

Week 3 Craft Link:  See how to make a star sun catcher here.  Make sure a grown up does the baking and let the stars cool completely before kids touch them.
