Right place, Right time

Friday January 11th, Matthew 2: 9-10 Instructed by the king, they set off. Then the star appeared again, the same star they had seen in the eastern skies. It led them on until it hovered over the place of the child. They could hardly contain themselves: They were in the right place! They had arrived at the right time! Notice that while in the presence of power and greed they could not see the star. Herod was too full of his own harsh light to let the heavens shine. It is when we shed the pretensions of glory of this world that we begin to see the light of God. It is when we turn off our own lights that God’s light some shining through. And when we let God lead us, we too, like the wise men of old, find ourselves at the right place at the right time.
