Teachable moments…we all look for them…a time to sow into the lives of our children and grandchildren. Making memories… it might be just for fun, but we can ask the Lord to turn it into teachable moments. Encouraging them to spread love in their classrooms, looking for that one child that needs a compliment, or a special smile, or just someone to talk to at lunch. Picking out someone who usually sits alone, being a friend.
Isn’t that what Christmas is really about. Sharing love from the One who gave love to us all. My favorite Christmas card says this, “He came to pay a debt He didn’t owe, because we owed a debt we couldn’t pay.”
We can show the Love of Jesus to someone today, by being His hands and feet. Loving the unlovely. Taking gloves to the homeless, sharing a money card so they can have breakfast.
Giving., isn’t that what He came to do…GIVE????
We all know it’s better to give than receive. It’s time to teach our children to give…help them Mom & Dad.
