What I’m listening to: Angels We Have Heard on High by The Combined Choirs of Luther College & Symphony Orchestra
Welcome to Day 19 of our Advent series! If you’re up to date, awesome, if not, be sure to check out the previous posts. The first one explains a little more about the series. Now, let’s go back to where we last left off in Matthew.
Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.”
Matthew 2:7-8 (NIV)
God calls us to have trust, but that doesn’t mean we have to trust everyone, only the Lord. Here in Matthew, Herod claimed that he wished to worship the baby Jesus, when he actually meant the Christ child harm. We are not called to be naïve in order to be “good” Christians. In fact, since we trust the Lord, we do not have to rely on putting our trust in anyone else. Trust the Lord to guide your trust in others.
Prayer Prompt: Ask God to show you who is and is not trustworthy in your life.
