Star of Light

“…They (the wise men) went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was.  When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.  (Matt. 2: 9,10)  How could a star bring such joy?  Because it led to the place where they found the King. Following that star of light was a journey and a pathway that led to hope and joy and life.                                                   Not all stars lead to life and not all journeys we follow are life-giving. We need to honestly ask ourselves what we are following because what we are following determines what lies at the end of our journey. There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death. (Proverbs 16:25), and following nothing will lead to nothing. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  (John 8:12)   What are you following?
