The Epiphany of the Lord

In the first reading the prophet refers to a shining light arriving in Jerusalem. He states that all nations will stream to give glory and praise to the LORD. This is further emphasized with references to the gold and frankincense being offered. Do we treat Jesus as the shining light in our life? Do we offer him the best we have, or do we give him the leftovers? In the Gospel reading we have the civil administration upset at the news of a new king. Sometimes in our world our governments do not like anything or anyone usurping the power they have acquired. Like Herod they will do all they can to suppress the message of the Gospel. Do we continue forward in faith, or do we follow the government leaders blindly?
