The story of the Magi speaks of how God outwits the powerful from their devious plans. While Herod sought to kill the new born king, he was duped as the Magi went home by another route.
God is always for the poor, the weak, and the forgotten. He seeks to lift up the lowly, he desires to restore the unjust in the world. The story of the Magi is more than an end to a nice hallmark story. It is the reality that God is very near to us. In that nearness, we are changed.
