Tis the season for celebration! Christmas is undoubtedly, unashamedly, my favorite holiday of the year. Yes, I’m one of those people who hangs garland in October and leaves their tree up well into January, y’all.
I love the smell of the tree in our living room.
I love reading Christmas stories to my children.
I love the lights, giving gifts, and the festive atmosphere.
But Christmas is so much deeper than that.
Here’s the dilemma: How can we give our children a sense of the wonder of Christmas without losing the power of God’s plan revealed in baby Jesus?
When Christmas comes around, I like to give my children visible reminders of the reason, the motivation, the purpose of all these festivities.
Why? Well, because it’s simply miraculous that at just the right time, when all hope seemed lost, the Rescuer stepped down to Earth.
It’s a beautiful picture of God’s saving plan. “Like a seed you were sown, for the sake of us all. From Bethlehem’s soil, came Calvary’s sequoia.”
