This was from 2 years ago but it is still one of my favorite memories of our Christmas countdown. I had to share it again! I love spending time with my family and learning about Jesus Christ. What better gift to give the Savior then love and time to his children. Sometimes I lose focus on how important that is as a parent. What gift will you give that really matters? What will you give to Jesus? What do you think he really wants?
Here is a list of possible spiritual gifts. Just like the 3 wise man gave their best and rare gifts, I would suggest starting with these 3.
- Serve others-Isn't that what we do for our family everyday?
- Study the scriptures and pray everyday. Not just a quick prayer but really talk to him.
- Live in thanksgiving and have faith during the difficult times in our lives
Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.
There is many gifts we can give our Lord and Savior. Choose one to work on this week and be better at. We don't have to worry about doing it perfectly but just to be willing and obedient. What will you give to Jesus?
Okay so without further adieu here is that post I promised.
This is what the kids,and yes,my husband came dressed up as ninjas.
They had to go around the chair and passed the chair without making a sound and then sit down for the devotional. Apparently we are having a ninja Christmas!<<<big sigh>>>
