The Wise Men Parable invites us to reflect on three things:
- To recognise that truth and integrity and wise leadership may lie in all sorts of people who may have many understandings of life and faith.
- That is every page in history, the evidence of the presence of God may be hard to find. Our God, in Christ, is not triumphant and almighty in obvious ways.
- That inevitably the forces of this world will need to find and destroy that sign of the presence of God. To live fully as the people of God may well take us along pathways tha may call for courage and commitment.
Andrew Collis & Dorothy McRae-McMahon, “Bringing the Word to Life Together”
Question: When have you had an experience of finding something true and wise and good in someone, something that brings you into the presence of God? Someone who brings light into the world? Someone who shines like a Star?
