Reflection and response questions:
- Read verse 10. Have you ever experienced this kind of joy in your life? What was the occasion? Why do you think these wise men were so joyful?
- Read verses 1-6. Why do you suppose the Jewish leaders didn’t rejoice when they heard about the king of the Jews being born in Bethlehem? What does this say about having joy?
- What does it mean to receive King Jesus into our life? In what ways does he change us as a king? In what ways does he change the world?
