It never fails that at this time of the year the “greedies” and “gimmes” take over. Yes, we have fun traditions and special devotions that help us all keep our eyes on Jesus. But come Christmas morning, my kids are usually just thinking about what is under the tree…for them.
It’s good to be excited about the gifts that we’ve been given. However, I think we’ll all agree that often times there is a little too much focus on what we’ll be getting. Most kids stutter when asked, “What is your favorite part of Christmas?”
Everybody knows that Jesus is the right answer 99% of the time, especially when asked at church.
Over the fifteen years that I’ve been blessed with the title of Mom, I’ve watched the varying dynamics at Christmas time. Then a few years ago, something very significant changed things.
