As parents, we can sometimes get so busy with life that we rarely stop to just sit and listen to our kids and what their hearts are trying to tell us. They have desires, dreams, goals, frustrations, and struggles just like we do, and at times we don’t even know what all of those things are. Maybe not because they won’t tell us, but because we haven’t taken the time to ask or to listen.
God has called us to help our family succeed, and one of the ways we can do that is by engaging with what’s in their heart, and then gifting ourself to them by committing to come alongside in the coming year to help make those things a reality.
Don’t just give your family gifts this Christmas, gift yourself to them as the greatest present of all. And remember, Jesus is our ultimate example who gifted himself to a world that he loved…“For the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
What are some other ways that you plan to gift yourself to your family this Christmas?
