And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. Matthew 2:11 KJV
Imagine traveling for two years across dangerous lands to worship the Lord in His house and to present their offerings to Him.
The Magi, or Wise Men, left their homes, families, and friends and set out on a long and arduous journey. Their priority was to worship the King of kings and the Lord of Lords.
Why, then, is it so difficult for some to cross town to worship Him in His house (the church) and bring their tithe and offerings when that is what God requires?
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts. Malachi 3:10-12 KJV
