Christmas Wonder No. 10: 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
Astronomers continue to study the phenomenon of the Bethlehem star for explanation. Whether it was a convergence, a supernova, or something else, the creation couldn’t keep its mouth shut. The Creator had become a creation. For millennia people all over the world have 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, interpreted a message about a King and responded.

In his Chronicles of Narnia C.S. Lewis wrote:
“In our world, a star is a huge ball of flaming gas.”
“Even in your world, my son, that is not what a star is, but only what it is made of.” [replied the star.]

Lord, help me to notice and rejoice when something unexpected points to You.
