As a mom, we can teach our children to Christ in Christmas with purposeful intent. The most valuable legacy any of us can pass to our children is the invaluable legacy of faith in Christ.
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates. (Deuteronomy 6:4-9)
This spiritual principle holds true for us today. It is both our privilege and responsibility to help our children know God’s Word.
Here are some ways on how we can impact our kids with the truth about Christmas.
Tell the story about Christmas
Don’t forget the most basic way to share the story of first Christmas – read the biblical account to your children.
Give to someone in need
This season is the perfect opportunity to teach our children the joy of helping others.
Tell someone about Jesus
We must look for opportunities to tell others about the reason for the season. Let’s begin with our children. Tell them and model for them how to tell others. Help them learn how to tell the Christmas story and then encourage them to share the story with others.
Attend Christmas services
