Day 3: Unfailing Love – The Greatest Tradition

 

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 (NIV)

Greetings!

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. 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, NIV) A celebration that he had performed many miracles and delivered the Israelite people out of the hands of Pharaoh in Egypt. God had told them to celebrate this festival at the same time every year so that it was a tradition, a time to remember and a time to teach the next generation of his unfailing love.

Christmas is indeed a time of celebrating traditions and the greatest tradition to celebrate is the birth of our Savior. It’s a time to remember and 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 unfailing love…

Let’s choose to share the love and joy of knowing our Savior this Christmas with our children, our neighbors, and to ALL we encounter.

Blessings,

The Johnstons

    I am really enjoying your advent series. In our family we started years ago of baking a happy birthday cake with our children. We would sing happy birthday to Jesus and celebrate his birth. Our children are adults now with their own families, and they have continued with this same tradition baking and celebrating Jesus birthday. In today’s world the reason for the season is so lost in this material world, but just this simple tradition reminds us of what this season is really about. I pray that my grandchildren continue this tradition on with their children in years to come.
    Thank you for sharing this series with us!
