    The Little Children and Jesus

    People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.

    Luke 2: 11-19
    The Savior - yes, the Messiah, the Lord - has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.” Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others - the armies of heaven - praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.” … The shepherds hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby, lying in the manger. 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 shepherd’s story were astonished, but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often.

    Luke 2:1-7
    At that time the Roman emperor, Augustus, decreed that a census should be taken throughout the Roman Empire. (This was the first census taken when Quirinius was governor of Syria.) All returned to their own ancestral towns to register for this census. And because Joseph was a descendant of King David, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea, David’s ancient home. He traveled there from the village of Nazareth in Galilee. He took with him Mary, his fiancee, who was now obviously pregnant. And while they were there, the time came for her baby to be born. She gave birth to her first child, a son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.
     
    Thoughts to discuss: 
    • How do you feel Jesus’ love, His presence, with you everywhere you go? How can you keep unwrapping the gift of His presence - the gift of God with you?

    • Write a thank-you note or draw a picture, thanking Jesus for His unstoppable love. Write a neighbor, sharing this love.

    Today’s Reading: Matthew 1:20-23
    An angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Joseph, a son of David,” the angel said, “do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For the child within her was conceived by the Holy Spirit. And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” All of this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet: “Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’”
     
    Thoughts to discuss:
    • Do you remember what Jesus’ name means? Why do you think God decided that His name should mean “the Lord saves”?
    • When is it the hardest for you to remember that God is with you? 
    • Find out what each member of your family's name means. Create a reminder of the meaning for their names.

    Glorious – “Ascribe”
    Series: Glorious

    Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,     ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;     worship the Lord in the splendor of his[a] holiness.

    The voice of the Lord is over the waters;     the God of glory thunders,     the Lord thunders over the mighty waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful;     the voice of the Lord is majestic. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;     the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.

     He makes Lebanon leap like a calf,     Sirion[b] like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord strikes     with flashes of lightning.  The voice of the Lord shakes the desert;     the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord twists the oaks[c]     and strips the forests bare. And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”

     The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;     the Lord is enthroned as King forever. The Lord gives strength to his people;     the Lord blesses his people with peace.
