Christmas is about children


Christmas can be such a joyful time, and it is even more

so when celebrated through the eyes of a child. Children

hear the story of the birth of Jesus, their eyes open wide, and they

eagerly step forward with open arms to be a shepherd or an angel

in the church’s Nativity play. Christmas is about children.


When the disciples asked who would be the greatest, Jesus

placed a child among them: “Truly I tell you, unless you change

and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom

of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this

child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”


The angelic chorus declared: “Glory to God in the highest!”

Jesus, God’s Son, came as a child. Later, when children were

brought to Jesus, He stopped everything and made time for them,

placing His hands on them and blessing them.


Jesus went on to tell the disciples, “And whoever welcomes

one such child in my name welcomes me.” This Christmas,

welcome Jesus like a child, with eyes wide open and with open

arms, and then welcome and bless the children around you.
