Christmas Emotions (5)

Most people want things at Christmas. A child wants to find that special toy on Christmas morning. Adults want special foods and gifts that they enjoy. Maybe you make a Christmas list each year of the things you want.
Verse 4 of our Bible Reading says, “Enjoy serving the Lord, and he will give you what you want.” Does that mean that God will give you everything on your Christmas list? No! This means that when we enjoy serving God, we will want the same things that God wants. We will want to do things that please Him.
How can we enjoy serving God? First, we can thank God for sending Jesus. Then, we can give God control of our lives. We can also trust Him to take care of us. Finally, we can share God’s Word with other people.
I hope that you enjoy serving God today. Look for ways to help and encourage other people. God will bless you and give you His love and protection.
