Yep there he is…
doing his thing in this years christmas play.
This play went very well, one of the best. It told the story of Jesus…
a story that is often forgotten because of everything else “Christmas” has to offer these days.
It’s not that Santa or Rudolf or Elves or Christmas Trees or gift giving is bad. They are not bad, they are fun things to do and fun stories to tell.
Its when they take the place of Christ and we push Him back in the corner and focus more on the “pretend aspect” of Christmas instead of the real aspect.
I am proud of the crew that put this play together for our church and their focus on the Biblical Christmas story. It was a reminder to the kids that Christ is the meaning of Christmas and that is something the church needs to always put in front of them… as long as we can.
My encouragement to you today is to seize each opportunity you have with your kids to remind them of what this season is really about.
What are you doing this Christmas to make sure they know the Real reason for the Season?
