Jesse Tree - Day 20 - The Star

The Star. It's a Christmas symbol we are all familiar with. Today our Jesse Tree readings told us a little about that star. First we read from Number 24:17-19a - where the prediction of a star leading the way is made. And then we read the familiar story of the three magi following the star in Matthey 2:1-6, 9-11.
This star was placed at the top of the Jesse Tree - alongside the angel that already resides there. A star - the light of the world. It's all connected. And it's origins go back to before the beginning of time. It's all almost too much to grasp.

But I suppose it means we must follow the light - follow the one who said he was the light. And that is Jesus.
