[If you have a printed Bible available, I recommend you read the passages directly from it. It’s a great way to teach our children to treasure it.]
“And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good.”
All of God’s creation is good. And because his heart is good, everything he makes is a product of his goodness. Christmas exists because God is good and he only gives good gifts to his children.
“Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!”
Thank you, heavenly Father for being good. Give us a good heart that wants to give good things to those around us. In Jesus’ name, amen.
