Advent: Day Twenty-two

The ornament for Day Twenty-two is a star, which is one of my favorite Christmas symbols. The story of the Wise Men following the star to Bethlehem is found in Matthew 2:1-12. The devotional book tells that the five-pointed star is called the Ephiphany Star, symbolizing the body of Jesus Christ. The five points represent His hands and feet that were nailed to the Cross and His head with the crown of thorns (p. 85).

May we all, like the Wise Men who searched for the baby Jesus, be willing to seek Jesus and follow Him as Lord of our lives.
