Travel today can be fun and exciting, but in the year of our Lord’s birth travel was slow, arduous, and difficult. We are told that the Wise Men traveled across a continent to see the Messiah. You can only imagine the difficulties they encountered along the way – fresh water, food, a place to rest and sleep. Without a doubt it was probably difficult, but this journey was one of love and commitment.
Matthew 2:1-2; 11-12
