As the Christmas season comes to a head we at More4Kids want to wish you and your family the best of the Christmas season. May your Christmas wishes come true and may you and yours experience the true joy of the holiday. Pause for a moment and contemplate the true meaning of Christmas. If you can teach your kids this one simple truth, imagine what a blessing they will be when they grow up and walk in this truth.
Jesus is the reason for the season. The first Christmas gift came from God, Himself. He gave mankind his only Son to offer us a way back to Him. We exchange gifts in honor of Jesus’ birthday every year. We give to each other to express our love and gratitude. Because God loved us so much He sent His son to us to blaze the trail right back to Him. Can you imagine when you get to spend your first Christmas in Heaven?
Our Christmas wish for you is that you help your kids see the best in others in the same way God sees us. Teach them the true meaning of Christmas and help them to walk in Christmas joy not just on December 25 but in all of 2016 and 2017. It’s not a joy that occurs due to happy circumstances. It’s a joy that lives within our hearts. We hope you experience this with your family no matter what life my bring your way.
While many may feel Christmas exists to line the pockets of retailers, we long to see a world that doesn’t put a material price on the true meaning of the day. Don’t let it be just a day filled with costly gifts that you can’t carry with you to Heaven, but let it be a lifestyle of peace and joy. Choose to take the true meaning of Christmas and carry it with you always.
We hope you can find ways of showing Christmas love to others through your kindness and actions. When your children see you offering a helping hand they will grow up to do the same. Make a plan to extend Christmas love throughout the year. Just because the Salvation Army bell doesn’t ring in the spring, doesn’t mean no one needs your help. Find ways of helping others and let’s build a generation of people who know how to pay it forward.
Take a moment to hug your children. Hold them close and give thanks for the blessing they are in your life. Every child is a blessing and a gift from God. Cherish every step of their childhood, because it’s fleeting. Before you know it they will be grown and going off to live their lives as adults.
Start the new year with a grateful heart and encourage your children to do the same. Remember they see and follow your example. Make it a resolution to make 2016 the best year yet by blazing a kindness trail for your children to follow.
Merry Christmas from More4Kids to your family! May you always experience true peace and joy and may it be your path in life.
