We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the LORD, about his power and his mighty wonders. Psalm 78:4
Christmas is full of traditions; we put up Christmas trees and string lights and decorate greenery and hang the stockings all in a row. We Christmas carol and bake yummy treats for all the loved ones we will soon see. But in the midst of enjoying all the fun Christmas traditions, have we overlooked sharing the most important one?
We read of the tradition of the Festival of Unleavened Bread in Exodus 12. God had told his people “This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the LORD-a lasting ordinance. (verse 12) A celebration that he had performed many miracles and delivered them out of the hands of Egypt. God had told them to celebrate this festival at the same time ever year so that it was a tradition, a time to remember and a time to teach the next generations of his unfailing love.
Christmas is a time of celebrating traditions! And the greatest tradition to celebrate is the birth of our Savior. A time to remember and to teach our children that God sent his only Son into the world to save us all. To tell them of all the praiseworthy deeds of our LORD, his power and the wonders he has done. To tell them of his everlasting love…
We want to encourage you this Christmas to share the love and the joy that comes in knowing our Savior to your children, your neighbors, to all those you encounter.
