Day 10 – Discover the power of a simple gift!

I am a big fan of VeggieTales, and I think these DVD’s are a great way to teach our kids about bible stories and life lessons.

Being a fan it’s no surprise that the 3rd Christmas movie of Veggie Tales will be in our christmas countdown.

For day 10 of our 25 days of cheerful christmas we watched St. Nicholas – The story of joyful giving.

In this movie I absolutely loved the message about the importance of giving gifts to those less fortunate. In addition, I liked the idea on how they tackled that we don’t give gifts to make us happy. Rather we give gifts because we are happy .

As little A is still on the magical stage of christmas we try to focus more on being a joyful giver and not on the christmas presents that he will receive.

In my opinion now a days children are being taught of knowing and understanding the value of giving this Christmas.

Because God – the greatest giver – gave us the greatest gift – Jesus.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
