THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Christmas in July: If Kids Only Knew”


If kids only knew who they were really dealing with they might not care what’s under the tree. Many parents use the excuse that they don’t want to take anything from their kids. Especially since other kids will get gifts. I told my children the truth. I didn’t scare them, but before I told my congregation I told my kids the origins of Christmas. Whenever another child or adult would ask them why they didn’t participate, they were locked and loaded. They got better at telling the story than I did on their level. My kids never knew what I was coming home with at times. I didn’t wait till their birthdays. If I saw a bike, or something on sale I thought would bless them I bought it for them. I wasn’t trying to replace Christmas. I was simply being a blessing for no special reason. Their friends might get a new game system. My boys learned how to sow seed and got two new systems. Which do you think was the better story. Look folks I know this is a change in the way you do things, but it honors God and keeps you from making the same mistake Israel made playing around with these pagan deities.
