Do You Hear What I Hear?

1 12-20 1 Mark 16 15

 

Verse of the Day:  Mark 16:15

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

 

This Christmas carol describes how the news of Jesus’ birth might have swept across the land. From the lamb to the shepherd boy all the way to the king and everyone in between the story of the birth of the Savior, the light of the world, is being shared.  Today, we also have the same commission and more. We’re to share not only the news of the birth of Jesus Christ but also His teachings, His death, His resurrection, and His second coming.

Jesus is the Reason for the Season

1 12-1 1 Proverbs 22 6.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 22:6

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

 

Christmas is a great opportunity to start teaching children about Jesus.  You can find ways to teach them the story of how and why Jesus was born and the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior.  For example, you can read stories from the Bible or children’s books appropriate for their level of understanding, you can sing Christmas carols and talk about their origins, or you can use a nativity scene and other decorations, like a star to explain what they represent.  Make the most of this occasion to share Jesus with your family.
