Sunday Thoughts: The Magi vs. Herod

Two different kinds of leaders...

The Magi traveled incredibly far and presumably with great difficulty to honor someone else.

Herod has an inkling who the new king is because he "inquired of them where the Christ was to be born."  So does he rejoice at the possibility that the Prince of Peace foretold in the sacred texts of the Jews might have arrived, bringing peace with His reign?  Nope.  He sees a rival to his power.  He'd rather have power his way than peace under someone else.
