9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
-Do you know why the wise men rejoiced when they saw the star? Not because of any beauty or splendor which the star possessed; nor because its movements proved right their predictions; but because the star was leading them to the Lord. There are a great many things that draw our attention and lead us in any number of directions, but if those things point anywhere other than to the Lord, they will ultimately leave us unfulfilled and without joy.
