There was something unsettling deep inside him, something drawing him to a place without power and prestige to give of his time and resources.

After coming into the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell to the ground and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. And having been warned by God in a dream not to return to Herod, the magi left for their own country by another way. – Matthew 2:11-12 (NASB)
