The Adoration of the Magi – Matthias Stom

And we’re back. I hope everyone had a blessed and wonderful Christmas and New Year. Yesterday, we celebrated the Feast of the Epiphany – the coming of the wise men to Jesus. I thought it was a funny juxtaposition to how some people see religion and faith today. The thought is that in order to believe in God, you can’t believe in science,  and you have to deny your own intelligence. Well, if God is something made up, then all that is probably true. You can’t look too close, you can’t think too hard, or you will see past the charade. But if He’s real, if He actually exists, but in a way that is easy to look over, then the wisest of things would be to look for Him. It is like looking for an oasis in the desert. There are many mirages that can distract and fool you, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a place of water and shade. It means you have to look closely, use your intelligence to see through the mirage, and watch for signs that lead you to the true oasis. May this be a year of wisdom for all of us.
