Read Matthew 2:1-2 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Have you ever seen a shooting star or meteor shower?
Parent Note: On the night that Jesus was born, a star rose and shined so brightly that people near and far took notice. The star didn’t flash across the sky and then vanish—this star hung in the sky producing an amazing light for quite a long time. This was no normal occurrence—this was a sign.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for sending Jesus to be my Savior.
Like a shining star, You sent him into the world for all to see.
Help me to seek Jesus with my whole heart.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
