As we bring this series to a close, I’d like to share one last tradition we began with the boys soon after we became Christ followers. 

On Christmas morning, children are bouncing off walls and even a few adults (whom shall remain nameless) have been known to get giddy about the possibilities lurking in a stocking nearby but the moments just prior to the sound of ripping paper holds the power to redirect our attention to the true Gift, Jesus Christ. 

Early on, Brian began reading Luke 2 before the first gift was opened. Occasionally he would change things up by reading prophetic verses from the Old Testament. It’s a tradition we continue, except that now our children have their own little ones…and the truth carries on.

May you and your family have a worship-filled Christmas, on that day and every day. 

I’ll be taking a blogging break this week but look forward to sharing a new post with you in January!

All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord;
they will bring glory to your name.  For you are great and do marvelous
deeds; you alone are God. 
Psalm 86:9,10
