Immanuel = God with us. Where is He in your life? God promised to send a Savior. The prophets looked forward to the time when God would keep that promise. How do you plan to help your family recognize & celebrate the deeper meaning of Christmas?
People who are wise seek what matters hundreds of years from now. Clothes, electronics, games, gadgets, jewelry, toys, and other material things give pleasure for a short period of time. Only one gift will matter hundreds of years from now. That is the gift God gave us through His Son Jesus.
