Gift Of The Wise Men
“The Wisdom of God is foolishness to man.”
There’s a fine line between foolishness and wisdom, madness and genius, insanity and insight. It’s easy for us to get stuck in logical ways of thinking and forget to include our heart and spirit in the decision-making process. Thankfully, the wise men followed divine guidance as they left their homeland to travel to Christ’s birth.
They gave him three gifts: Gold (to honour him as King), Frankincense (to honour him as God), and Myrrh (to honour the sacrifice he would make by his death). And yet, they gave these gifts to a poor child living out back behind the inn with animals. Logic would say there’s nothing kingly about the manger-boy at all, certainly nothing that would suggest that he was the Son of God. But they followed deeper wisdom and honoured God in the child. Now, these men are forever known as Wise.
As I smell Frankincense and Myrrh today, I ponder the meaning of these sacred gifts. In addition to its powerful properties for healing the body and restoring DNA, Frankincense has been used through the ages to help restore spiritual connection. There’s never been a more urgent time to restore our connection with God.
Myrrh is no small gift either. Used historically for the cleaning of wounds and embalming, Myrrh purifies the skin, cleanses the body, and acts as a powerful antibacterial agent. With Christ’s mission on earth involving spiritual trials, physical pain, and a powerful death, the gift of Myrrh prophesied about his future. For us today, Myrrh can be used for its powerful antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-parasitic qualities, as well as for skin health and even a sense of spiritual protection.
I’m so excited that dōTERRA is giving Frankincense away for free this year in their December promo, because Frankincense is an oil that everyone should experience! But I think of Frankincense and Myrrh as a pair, because they were both given to Jesus, and they both offer powerful physical and spiritual benefits. So I will be giving away a free 15mL Myrrh oil to one lucky winner!
