I watched this video the other day with my daughter. People fighting over phones. But would any of these people fight like that for Jesus? This is just the icing on my Christmas Cake–the very reason I am making a change in my family for Christmas.
The behavior in this video has become the norm. Our entire society is numb, lukewarm even.
But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! Revelation 3:16
Our kids deserve better. So tonight, I will have a conversation with my kids about Christmas and the value of people, not things. I will start by showing them this video. I will share the scriptures God has laid on my heart. After that, I have absolutely no clue what I am going to say. I will simply speak the truth and see what they have to say! This season I want them to know that the little things don’t matter, only Jesus does.
But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! 42 There is only one thing worth being concerned about…” Luke 10:41-42a
Jesus is our ONE THING, and as fun as Christmas is, and can be, the presents and the lights are dim in comparison to what our light is like when we are shining it for Jesus.
Are you willing to do the same with your family?
