Christmas morning is a highlight in our home but it can also expose the ugly materialism and selfishness in our hearts. How can we help our kids avoid materialism this Christmas season?
Christmas is God’s spotlight pointing to his faithfulness. God keeps his Word even when it seems impossible and Christmas is the sign that shines that truth for all to see.
Did God invent Christmas? The modern-day Christmas festival, like most such cultural phenomena, is a confusing mishmash of elements and influences. How should fathers sort out and celebrate this holiday “Christianly” with their families?
“Peace on earth” may seem more like a seasonal sentiment than a cultural reality in 2020. Tensions are high in our country and sometimes in our own homes and hearts. How can we find true peace today for ourselves and for our families?
Our capacity or lack of capicity to wonder has very serious spiritual implications. As dads, we need both to model a spirit of wonder as well as nurture it in our families. In the process, you’ll be preparing your family for the day of all days, that day when Jesus comes again to be marveled at among all who have believed. (2 Thessalonians 1:10).
For centuries, God’s people longed for the coming of Messiah. As the Christmas promises multiplied, so did the anticipation. This year, turn the whole month into a season of preparation to make the dawning of Christmas morning about more than presents in your home.
How can believing dads help their families catch the meaning of Christmas this year? Far more meaningful than any holiday décor, the true Christmas message can be on display as you serve your family like Christ Himself.
