Christmas Special - The Gift of Christmas

Last Sunday Discovery Point: 
Christmas Special - The Gift of Christmas
Today, we learned that Christmas is a time in which we should celebrate the birth of Jesus and worship Him. We also learned that God loves us very much and gave us the ultimate gift when He sent His only son, Jesus, into the world to die for our sins, so that those who believe may have eternal life. God gave His very best for us, and we should give our very best to God. We need to keep an eternal perspective and not bow down to the temporal pleasures that the world has to offer. (Scripture used: Matthew 2:1-12)


Memory Verse:
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 NIV

Practice this verse several times with your child during the week. This will help him or her remember the verse and it will also help to reinforce what he or she learned during class.

Suggested Parent/Child Activity:
During the Christmas holiday, take time to help your child understand the spiritual dimension of the holiday. That love produces true joy. Help your child understand that we need to keep an eternal perspective and not bow down to the temporal pleasures that the world has to offer.
Daily Prayer:
Dear Lord, help us to focus on the spiritual side of Christmas, fill our hearts with joy and give us a spirit of worship as we celebrate the birth of Your only Son Jesus Christ. Amen.
