I would have loved hearing the dialog between the three wise men, Joseph and Mary.
A man was passing through a small southern town where there was a
nativity scene on exhibit that showed great skill and talent had
gone into creating it. One small feature bothered the man though.
The three wise men were all wearing fireman’s helmets.
Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, the man
left. At the “Quik Stop” at the edge of town, the man asked the
lady behind the counter about the helmets. She exploded into a
rage, yelling at the man, “You damn Yankees never do read the Bible!”
The man assured the lady that he read the Bible regularly but
simply could not recall anything about firemen in the Bible.
She jerked her Bible from behind the counter and ruffled through
some pages and finally jabbed her finger on the passage.
Sticking it into the man’s face she said, “See, it says right
here, “The three wise men came from afar.””
And he spake of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springeth out of the wall: he spake also of beasts, and of fowl, and of creeping things, and of fishes.
1 Kings 4:33
Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
The earth is full of things for are use.
Using essential oils that are written about in the bible are a blessing.
All the plants on earth are here for a purpose, what a blessing.
Essential oils were a part of the daily lives of people in the days of Jesus.
