A sense of compassion and un- derstanding grips our hearts as we realize that much of the ex- citement and bliss has been dark- ened in the home of our late pres- ident's wife. The same is true of countless thousands of honl across America, as well as in otr om connnunity, at this season of the year. Yet we must realize that men are in the dark not because of the death of a great American; but because they fail to get a glimpse of the nteaning of events. Tragic events like we have wit- nessed only take place because of sin. The devil has darkened the hearts and eyes of men. reflect* ing this darkness over the uni- verse through the vile acts of men. Our president may very well have been a "star" pointing Amer- ica back to God, faith in Him, prayer to Hint. and trust in Hint. "CENTVIIES AGO, a star ap- peared to sonte wise men in the East..Tl]ese wise men were the intellectuals of their time. Had they lived in our day, they might be great scientists, philosophers, or teachers. One thing made them different, however. They not only -tv: the star; they caught a glimpse of its meaning. ,Theft the), sacrificed time, comfort and mo- ney to make the long journey to find the promised King. Having gotten a glimpse of the star, the wisemen did not con- i tinue to gaze at it. Instead they acted on the tnlth they discovered and left their countzT in search of the One of whom the star spoke, The King, not the star, wa their real concern.

Tte Bible is intended to lead (s to Christ. to inspire obed- ience and action, to change our lives. Wise men.follow Christ, not just starts. The star the wise men foltoveed was only significant h that it led them to Christ. The wise men could have be- S r come o taken up with observing the beauty of the star that they never would have found the ChriSt of which the star spoke.
