Detours are terrible things in my opinion. They WILL not allow me to get where I’m going in a timely fashion. They make me late…they make me slow down…they make me angry! That being said, there have been times when I have seen amazing things on detours that I obviously wouldn’t have seen had the road taken me the way I wanted to go. The wise men…and Mary and Joseph are all directed in dream to take a detour after Jesus is born to avoid the wrath of Herod. I wonder what that was life for them?
Reading Matthew 2:1-23
