What is the most important talk you can have with your kids at Christmas? I’ve received many answers that include some of these:
- true reason for the season
- not always asking
- how to be charitable and not selfish
- to be grateful for what we receive.
These are all important ideas to share with your kids, but I’d like to go a little deeper. Not more complicated or more theological, just a little deeper as we prepare for Christmas.
When I heard this on Sunday at church, I knew I had to share this with all the moms I know.
Just a heads up:
This is nothing new.
It’s obvious! It’s what we should be talking about regularly and I suggest you start talking with your kids at Christmas.
So, here it is . . . and it only takes 10 minutes or less with your kids. Surely, you have 10 minutes between now and Christmas to talk with your kids.
It doesn’t matter how old your kids are. This is for 9 months old, 4 year olds, 8 year olds, 15 year olds. Speak truth over them at all ages. They all need to hear this over and over. We all do.
A piece of advice:
Don’t wait until you think your kids will understand.
Only God knows when they will understand. As moms, our job is to share His Good News. That truly is the most important talk you can have with your kids at Christmas time, no matter how old they are.
Are you still not sure how to share this in 10 minutes?
Here are a few ideas and verses to easily share the Gospel with your kids. Don’t complicate it. Just tell your kids the Gospel. Then, let them ask questions.
for all (your name & your kids names) have sinned and fall short of the glory of GodRomans 3:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 6:23
