Day 9: The Wise Men

Matthew 2:
1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

2 Saying, Where is he that is born, King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him

10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him, and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts: gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

"When we find him, will we be prepared as were the wise men of old to provide gifts from our many treasures? They presented gold, frankincense, and myrrh. These are not he gifts Jesus asks of us. From the treasure of our hearts Jesus asks that we give ourselves: 'Behold, the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind" (D&C) 64:34)." -Thomas S. Monson
