Magi Came Searching

Matthew 2:1  Magi from the east came to Jerusalem looking for the new king.  They had a seen a sign and were sure a new king had been born.  Eventually they found him and worshipped him.

We, too, want a new ruler over our lives, someone who will make our lives all we want them to be.  We haven’t seen a sign, we’re not following a star, we’re not even sure that a new ruler for our lives is predicted.  We just know we want a new one.  One that will bring us peace.  One that knows how to rule with justice.  One that knows how to make things happen.  One that cares about his subjects.

Are we required to see a sign?  Do we need to travel somewhere?  Or is it enough to want?
