Long after the toys and gifts are broken or forgotten, our families will remember the Christmas experience.
In This Episode, We Look At:
Several ideas to create a memorable Christmas season including:
Go to church: What better place to be on Christmas Eve than in the house of the Lord, celebrating the birth of our Savior?
Involve your children in bringing a gift to Jesus—whatever is on their heart.
Matthew 2:11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
The Tone: Dads, you are the example of Christ in your family. Are you “prayed up?” It’s so easy for us to get in the flesh with pressure and planning. The Enemy does not want Christ honored…
Put Christ first: One danger of being saved a long time and having many Christmases under your belt is losing just how special and precious the Christmas story is to us. Read the Bible—even if the kiddos protest, “Dad! We want to open the presents!”
Luke 2:1-39 includes the prophesy that Jesus Christ came to die and save us from our sins.
Isaiah 9:6-7 prophecy of the birth of our Savior as God in the flesh
Exhibit gratitude: They will be influenced by your example.
Traditions: It’s interesting how our children will remember family traditions as they grow into adulthood, and then establish traditions for their own families.
