Today is the 1st of December. Soon Christmas will be here. This month may be filled with lots of activities and fun times for you and your family. I encourage you to make sure that everything you do this month will show the true meaning of Christmas — the birth of God’s Son, Jesus.
My friend, Pam, loves to show other people the real reason for celebrating Christmas. She says that Christmas lights remind her of the star that led the wise men to find Jesus and worship Him. The Christmas songs that Pam sings allow her to praise God for Jesus’ birth. The presents that she gives to others help her remember the gifts that the wise men gave to Jesus.
Our Bible verses today tell us part of the story of Jesus’ birth. As you celebrate Christmas, be sure that your activities show other people about God’s love and His wonderful plan of salvation.
