Jesus is the Reason for the Season

Proverbs 22 6

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 22:6

Train children in the way they should go; when they grow old, they won’t depart from it.

Christmas is one of the most wonderful and exciting times of the year and a great opportunity to teach young children about Jesus and the real reason for the season. You can tell them why we celebrate Christmas, how and why Jesus was born and the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior. 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. There are lots of other ideas on the internet that will help you keep Christ in Christmas for little ones. Before the world starts putting its idea of what Christmas is all about let’s teach them a Christ centered Christmas.

Live Wisely

Ephesians 5 15-16

 

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 5:15-16

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.

 

We are living in troubled times and it’s so easy to go astray from God’s ways. We need to live our lives conscientiously and with purpose. Jesus is your example of how to live a righteous and honorable life. Be diligent and wise in your decisions, making the most of every opportunity, always keeping your eyes focused on the Lord.  Ask God to give you the wisdom you need to make the right decisions in your daily life and He will gladly give it to you.

Let Them See God in You

Colossians 4 5.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 4:5

Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.

 

There is no doubt we all live very busy lives.  We work, we have families to take care of, appointments to keep, people to see and things to do.  It’s important that we give our best to the things we do. Whether we realize it or not, people are watching us to see if we practice what we preach.  Always conduct yourself in a way that pleases God because you represent Him in everything you do. Let them see God in you and in everything you do.

Monday, Monday
