I like the saying “What you will find (or receive) will depend on what you are looking for”.  The Wise Men were following a star, which they believed would take them to the “infant King of the Jews”.  And, indeed, they did find Him!  This leads me to reflect on which star we are following, and what we are looking for – which will determine what we will find.  We can follow a star that leads to fame, success, power, possessions, and riches.  Many follow this star!  But there is another star – that is Jesus Christ the Lord – and leads us along a different path to find love, forgiveness, compassion, understanding, peace and justice.  Both are attractive, and both are within our reach, and I assure you “what you find (or receive) WILL depend on what you are looking for”, which star you are following.
