The Jesse Tree–Day Twenty-Five

Today’s reading was unique, because it focused not on a person, (or people), but on an object–the Star of Bethlehem (Matthew 2:1-6). Now, I understand the importance of the star, especially when it came to leading the Wise Men to Bethlehem…it’s a symbol for Jesus being a gift not only to Jews, but Gentiles as well. Still, it seemed like they were just trying really hard to find another item for the tree with this particular reading…there’s only so much you can say about a star!
