What Christmas means in one word to a Christian is Jesus. All Christians believe that Jesus is the Son of God and the Logger of the Holy Spirit. He came into the world to save His people from sin and was crucified and paid the price for their sin. He overcame death and is present in the hearts of believers to teach, minister, and lead them into all truth, life, joy, and happiness.
Christmas is a special gift to give to children to share in his sacrifice. Children learn about this sacrifice when they are children. They see Christmas as a time for giving gifts and not as a time to receive gifts. To them, Christ is the one who gave the true gift of gifts – life.
When you give your child gifts during the Christmas season, he will be able to understand the true meaning of Christmas. He will be able to appreciate the importance of giving gifts to others and be thankful that he is given gifts. He will also be encouraged to share what he has to others.
Another important thing that you must remember is that children should be separated from the gifts on Christmas day. The reason is that they are focusing on themselves and their desires, which are usually wrong. They think that Christmas day is a time to spend money and buy gifts for other people. It is a day to get gifts for yourself. So, it is advisable to tell your child to sit beside you on Christmas day and give him/her a gift, so that he/she can have a proper understanding about the sacrifice that he/she is going through in making the gift.
The sacrifice that a Christian has made throughout the year is what he/she will get at the end of the year. So, don’t leave him/her worrying about how he/she will spend the day. Spend the day with your loved ones and relatives and forget about the other person. Spending the Christmas day in the company of your loved ones will help your loved ones to forget about the person who started the whole season with them.
Children should be taught about the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made when he was on the cross. This sacrifice was not only for his own sake, but also for the sake of those who did not believe that he was the son of God. Through his death, God proved that he was the Son of God and this is why he was given the spot on the cross as a sacrifice. Your child should learn about the meaning of Christmas. Explain to him/her that a person should always think about the welfare of his soul and how he/she will gain eternal life. This way, he/she will know that there is really nothing bad in being a person, but only good and pure.
Children should also know that the Christmas is not all about gifts and presents. This is because there is another important day during the Christmas season which is the day of feasting. During this day, people from all the villages and towns come to give their loved ones gifts. And the gifts do not have to be expensive or fancy. In fact, the simplest gifts are the most important. The food, clothes and home decorations are also very important, but the gifts will really mean a lot to your loved ones.
So, what Christmas means in one word is sacrifice. Spend this day with your family and enjoy the celebration. But remember that you should always remember the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for you. He did not hesitate to make a sacrifice for you. After all, he loved you and taught you everything you need to know about being a good person.
