They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
Matthew 2:11 (NLT)
The wise men came prepared to present Jesus with some very special gifts: gold, frankincense and myrrh. These were the first Christmas presents ever given, and they weren’t cheap. The wise men gave Jesus the very best they had, and when we come to Jesus we should do the same. Jesus’ birth on Christmas is the greatest gift of all, and He is worthy of the very best we can give to Him!
