Tradition places the wise men at the stable on that first Christmas night, yet the scriptures record: “When [the wise men] were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother.” (Matthew 2:11). Why did the wise men come to a toddler and not an infant? To understand this timing we must understand the circumstance of Mary and Joseph.

In the Law of Moses, the poorest families could sacrifice a turtledove in place of a lamb (Lev. 12:9). When Mary came to the temple, she brought this substitute because the Holy Family was not blessed with worldly riches (Luke 2:24). Joseph must have felt overwhelmed when the angel commanded him to take his family and flee into Egypt. They had no means to make this journey, and so God sent Holy Men bearing gifts that allowed them to accomplish His commands.

There are times when we too feel unable to do what the Lord has asked. In these moments we should remember that our Father will care for us as He did His own Son. If we are patient, He will send others “bearing gifts” that allow us to accomplish what seems impossible.

In God We Trust

...but rather the strength of his conviction we see in his eyes. We see in him the eyes of faith. That he carries the burden of his imperiled country is abundantly clear. He gazes towards heaven, petitioning Providence for personal guidance and for the eternal might to strengthen freedom’s righteous cause. Yet, neither is he panicked, nor is he lost. In God We Trust captures, in an intimate moment of communion, the guiding light the Founding Fathers followed in creating this great nation. (full description below)
