The Children’s Christmas

 
Kids absolutely love a story!
They absorb every detail!
Few things bring more pleasure…
Few things rate more on their scale.
 
Kids get caught up in a mystery,
An adventure…fantasy!
Doors are opened and they enter
Wonder-filled…innocently.
 
They’ve heard stories about Santa…
Of how reindeer really fly.
Even if they’re told its fiction
They still love that jolly guy.
 
Kids are real good at pretending
They’re all into make believe.
It doesn't bother them that Santa
Isn’t all others perceive.
 
But because they’re so impressive,
Let’s be careful what they’re taught.
So when we teach them about Jesus
They’ll believe the way they ought.
 
 I believe we ought to tell them
The true story of St. Nick…
Of how he gave gifts to the orphans
And brought food to all the sick.
 
No, I am not dismissing Santa…
He has always played a part
In the children’s Christmas story… 
He represents the giving heart.
 
But he, too, must bow to Jesus…
Jesus always takes the lead.
 If we teach this to our children…
Our children will be blessed indeed.
 
We should all believe in Santa
And put to practice what he does.
“Give and it shall be given to you”
 Words of wisdom…words of love.
 
But let’s put things in perspective…
The emphasis should be on the birth
Of the baby in the manger…
 Our God’s Christmas gift to earth.

Luke 6:38
Give, and it will be given to you:
good measure, pressed down,
shaken together, and running over
will be put into your bosom.
For with
the same measure that you use, it will
be measured back to you. 


Proverbs 19:17
 He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD,
and he will reward him for what he has done.
 
Matthew 19:14  
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me,
 and do not hinder them, for the kingdom
of heaven belongs to such as these."
