Good Morning CC! ItsDay 6 of our Advent study. One of the most iconic symbols of Christmas is the star. We use them to decorate our Christmas trees, our homes, and we even cut cookies into the shapes of stars. The most significant star is in the story of Christmas; it was the light that guided the Magi to Bethlehem on the night of Jesus’ birth. God created this moment in history to place a spotlight on the humble beginnings of a child who would become our King.
Matthew 2:10 says, “the sight of the star filled them with indescribable joy.”
Astronomers today have used science and computers to replicate what the sky could have looked like 2,000 years ago. Some suggest the Star of Bethlehem was a rare conjunction of planets that came together in brilliant synchronization.
Today I want you to think about what is the Star in your life? What is your guiding principle?

I enjoy learning new things and testing my limits on things I didn't know before. Also spreadsheets.
