Read Matthew 2:9 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: What do you think would be the best way to celebrate your birthday?
Parent Note: Let your child answer and get creative. Then tell them that the day that Jesus was born, a light from Heaven shone over the stable where He and His earthly parents were staying. Angels showed up and praised God and announced the birth of our Savior. People from all over came to Bethlehem to see the baby Jesus and worship Him. The day Jesus was born both Heaven and earth celebrated.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for bringing salvation to the world.
Like the star, You have given us Jesus as our light to follow.
Help me to celebrate Jesus every day.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
