Who Really Appreciates Our Differences

“After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.” … On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh.” (Matthew 2: 2 & 11)

People who don’t have any Christian context come to Jesus from a different direction, with a different means of navigation, and with a different way of worshipping Him.  Jesus is not just the God of Christians, He is God of the east, God of the stars, and God of those who earnestly seek Him.
