Giving Christmas to Your Family

Anyone can understand Christmas in just three statements:

• I am a _________________________.

• As a __________________ I need a ____________________.

• ___________________ is that __________________

The best thing that you can give to your family this Christmas is found in this short passage.

Luke 2:17-20

After seeing him, the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said to them about this child. All who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished, but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often. The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them…

These passages suggests four ways of celebrating Christmas with and for your family:

Determine to be a _____________________ this Christmas.

1. ____________________ others about it.

2. Be __________________ at the event itself.

3. ______________________ on its meaning.

4. _________________ and ________________ God.
