Theme: God has chosen each of us for an important task.
Object: Coloring Page of Mary and the baby Jesus.
Scripture: Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11 (NIV)

 

I have a coloring picture for you this week. Do you know who that is? Yes! It’s Jesus and his mother, Mary. I was thinking this week about Jesus being born and about his mother, Mary. She was chosen by God out of all the other women to take care of Jesus and love him from the very beginning…what an important job she had as the mother of Jesus.

Do you know that God has chosen each of you too? Do you know that you are just as important to God as Mary was? Do you know how much God loves you? In the bible it says that God knew you even before you were born… isn’t that amazing! God has already chosen each of you and has a very important job and plan for your life!

As you think of Christmas and Jesus and Mary, I want you to always remember how very special you are to God and that your life counts. Isn’t that a nice Christmas present to get from God?

Let’s pray:

Dear God it is amazing to think that you love each of us just as much as you loved Jesus’ Mother, Mary. Thank you for your word that tells us we are special to you. Thank you for Mary and the way she loved and took care of Jesus when he was just a little child and thank you for Jesus too. Amen.
