{Day 22} Gifts #2: Why Do We Give Gifts at Christmas?

Do you remember what the wise men brought when they came to see Jesus? They brought him gifts! They did this because Jesus was God’s great king. Did you know that we give gifts on Christmas? Part of our celebration of Jesus’ birth is that we give Christmas presents to each other. We give presents because it is the time when we remember the greatest gift ever given. Do you know what it was? It was Jesus. God gave us Jesus, his only Son! Jesus was born into our world back in Bethlehem and he lived a life on earth and died to save us from our sins. Because of Jesus we can have peace with God! That is the biggest and best gift we could ever have. That is good news of great joy for all people. When we give gifts this Christmas, let’s remember that Jesus is the greatest gift, given to us.

Dear God, thank you for giving us your own Son, Jesus. He is the best gift ever given. Help us to remember him when we give presents on Christmas. Amen.
