Read Matthew 2:11 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: How far would you go to see Jesus if He were a man on the earth again?
Parent Note: Would we climb the highest mountain, swim an ocean? We don’t know exactly how far the wise men traveled, but it wasn’t a quick weekend road trip! Any distance would be worth the effort to see Jesus in person. The good news is that we don’t have to go anywhere to be with Jesus. He is with us always! Wherever we are, all we have to do is talk to Him. His blessings and guidance are available to us even without being in His physical presence.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear Lord, thank You for the gift of Jesus.
I know that he humbled himself and came down to earth as a baby for me.
Help me to seek after him with my whole heart.
In Jesus’s name I pray, amen.
