The Feast of the Epiphany is celebrated on 6th January. This feast is also called Little Christmas and Women’s Christmas. The Three Kings arrived from the East to honour the Infant Jesus. They represented the Gentiles and were directed by a star to Bethlehem. They knew that a King was born who deserved homage and respect. They knelt to worship Him and offered Him precious, symbolic gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. They returned home a different way disregarding Herod’s request. Most people make New Year’s Resolutions. We can focus our attention on the Ten Commandments. I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not have any strange gods before Me. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day. Honor thy father and mother. Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s goods.
