Advent counting down to Christmas – Day 22

22nd December.  A Pot of Myrrh

“They took out their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh and gave them to him.” (Matthew 2:11 CEV). Over the last few days we have looked at the gifts the Magi brought the baby Jesus, the last one is a pot of myrrh which is a rare perfume and holy anointing oil used in the Temple in Jerusalem.
