Let us muse today from Matthew 2:7-8 in the theme of Jesus the King. I see in our text today a deceitful worship. Herod calls the wise men in for a private inquiry. Be careful of those who always keep things in the dark and are never willing for the light of truth to shined upon what they are doing. We find in verse 8 that Herod had murder in his heart but piety on his tongue. Be careful of what men may say, you may not be seeing the true story because the tongue is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked who can know it? The greatest wickedness often conceals itself under the mask of piety.
