MATTHEW 2:1-2, 9-11 Wise men follow a special star to Jesus so they can worship Him and give Him gifts.
SAY THIS: Why is Jesus special? Jesus is God's Son.
Cuddle up wth your child this month and pray, "Dear God, thank You for loving us so much that You gave us your Son. Help us live out the love Jesus showed us so that everyone will know of Your great love. You've given us so much, God. Thank You! In Jesus' name, amen."
"God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son." John 3:16, GNT
BASIC TRUTH: Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
From Parent Cue:
3 RESOLUTIONS EVERY PARENT CAN KEEP By Jon Acuff
All the Christmas lights are gone, school is back in session and everyone is eating kale. Why?
Because the New Year, we always come up with resolutions. We’re going to eat better, exercise more and break our long-standing addiction to inappropriate amounts of queso. (That last one might apply only to me.) Sometimes though, we set such crazy, far-reaching resolutions that we fail before we even start. What if this year, when it comes to parenting, we could give ourselves some ridiculously easy resolutions? I think we can!
1. This year, not every meal the kids eat will be chicken nuggets.
You probably have the same bag of nuggets we had in our freezer. They call it family size, but they should just name it, “I don’t want to fight anymore trying to get my kids to eat something” nuggets. This year, resolve to feed your kids one meal that isn’t chicken nuggets. There are 1,095 meals in a year. Surely we can all go 1 for 1,095 . . .
