There is a special place in heaven for star makers. It is to the right as you enter through those pearly gates. There you will find the star makers; Joe’s Stars, Giuseppe’s Stars and Hugo’s Stars. Now of the three star makers, Hugo’s stars are the best, the brightest, and they last the longest. You ask, “Why aren’t there star makers on earth?” These stars are hung from the heavens and when you look up at the sky on a clear night you will see all their wonder; so they have to be made in heaven.
One day God came to Hugo’s shop because God wanted to place an order for a very large star that would guide some very important people to a very special baby. Hugo and God agreed upon a price; well let’s say Hugo accepted what God was willing to pay. There’s no arguing with God—He always seems to have the final word. Hugo told God that the star would be ready within the week. “Excellent,” God said, “I will need it in a few days.”
A few days later Hugo approached God to say that the star was finished. It was huge and did it ever shine. God asked Hugo, “Please place it in the far eastern sky and let it move slowly to the small town of Bethlehem.” Hugo inquired who the special child was. God replied, “It is for my Son, who this very night is born in Bethlehem. He is going to teach my people that I really love them and I want to be with them.”
Hugo saw the star moving toward Bethlehem, and lo and behold there were three men following the star. They were the Magi coming to bring gifts to God’s Son. It came to settle over the place where the child was.
Hugo got this idea that if one star could lead people to God’s Son, he could make other stars that would lead people to God’s Son. Now of course Hugo was a businessman and he knew there would be a nice bundle for him. One day God was walking past Hugo’s shop and Hugo ran out to meet Him. He said, “God, I can make you more stars that will lead more people to your Son. How about it?” God took Hugo to heaven’s edge and said, “Look down and what do you see?” Hugo saw that there were people, a lot of people, leading others to God’s Son. He was amazed; never in heaven would he ever think this would be possible—people leading people to God’s Son. It was almost unbelievable.
Make sure your light shines all year long so people who don’t know Jesus will find their way to Him.
Have a Blessed Christmas
