Shouting stars

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. Ps. 19:1-4

The creation couldn’t keep its mouth shut. The Creator had become a creation. Since the beginning people all over the world had looked up at the stars and wondered, searching for explanations and truth. In the first light of dawn three ancient Persian Magi, students of the stars,  picked up on the message and responded.

Lord, help me to pick up on it when something unexpected points to You.
