Gifts of the Wise Men

Have you ever wondered what happened to the gifts the wise men brought to the baby Jesus? They aren’t ever mentioned again after their presentation. Did Mary and Joseph trade them in for financial stability? Did Jesus keep them and treasure them as the symbols, the sacrifices they were? Did He ever look at them as a teenager or a young man and reflect on their meaning and relationship to His earthly ministry? This just occurred to me as I was reading “this story”: The answers to the questions don’t matter, ultimately, but it is interesting to reflect on them, just the same.

Have anything to add to the conversation?
