Packing Away Baby Jesus (Children's Sermon)

     A few weeks ago, I was having a conversation with one of our church members.  She shared with me a story from when her daughter was a little girl.  It was the same time of year as it is now...when Christmas had just ended.  While at church, she asked, "Mommy, are they going to pack Baby Jesus away until next Christmas?".  Wow.  Out of the mouth of babes...
     As you pack away your nativity and other Christmas decorations this year--be mindful to not pack away the meaning of Christmas with it.  Jesus is definitely the reason for the Christmas season---but we should share Jesus, love Jesus and talk to Jesus everyday of the year!
"Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction."  2 Timothy 4:2
