"When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy." Matthew 2:10
"And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told to them." Luke 2:20
Last night as we were driving home from Christmas celebration #1(which will later get a whole post dedicated to itself) I had my ipod earbuds in, and I was staring at the stars. And my heart ached...wouldn't it have been so amazing to have seen that star that night? The star shining in honor and glory of our Savior. How incredible would that have been?
Mary and Joseph had no idea how powerful their son was going to be. They didn't know what to expect. Shepherds and Magi came to worship their baby...can you imagine what was going through their heads?
But...this star, shining so brightly, led them to the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ.
And how amazing would it have been to have seen that star that night?
