A star over Bethlehem
Matthew 2
1 Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the reign of King Herod. About that time some wise men from eastern lands arrived in Jerusalem, asking,2 "Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him."

9 After this interview the wise men went their way. And the star they had seen in the east guided them to Bethlehem. It went ahead of them and stopped over the place where the child was.10 When they saw the star, they were filled with joy!11 They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
  12 When it was time to leave, they returned to their own country by another route, for God had warned them in a dream not to return to Herod.

Jesus, the son of God was born in Bethlehem. God send a star to mark this event and three wise men studied and followed this star. They arrived in Judea looking for the King of the Jews. After their interview with Herod they followed the start to Bethlehem where the found Jesus in a stable. The savior of mankind, the creator of heaven born in a manger.  
When the wise men saw Jesus, they bowed and worshiped Him and gave Him gifts.
Are you going to bow down and worship Jesus today and bring Him gifts? 
You don't need to go to fancy and important placed to find Jesus, you don't need to be perfect and wise. He is in you, His spirit lives in you. Let your life
today be your gift to Him.
Let His name be glorified through you in this day and week.

To God be all the glory.
