Here’s an idea to help your family focus on the real reason we celebrate Christmas. Have each person decide what gift he or she might give Jesus. Suggest that each spend time in prayer and ask Him what He would like from each one. It does not have to be monetary, though it can, but it does need to cost something on behalf of the giver. Focus on what changes might need to take place in order to grow closer to Christ. Maybe an idol needs to be surrendered or a habit needs to be broken. Write the gift to be given on a slip of paper, wrap it, and place it under the tree. On Christmas morning, open the gifts. If anyone is willing to share his or her gift, encourage them and offer to help by holding them accountable. Encourage everyone to keep the slip of paper in a place where they will be reminded throughout the year of the gift that was given to Jesus.
