Today we will be beginning our 21 day challenge. Over the next few weeks, I will be posting one challenge each day on our Facebook page Training Our Children in Godly Character. Each challenge will teach a character quality and I would love for you to sit down and do them as a family. Our children are never too young to learn about generosity, love, hospitality, and contentment.
During the holidays we can get caught up in ourselves and what we want. This challenge is going to turn the focus off of ourselves, and on to others. In turn we will be focusing on Christ because His ministry was all about serving and loving on others. He wants us to love and care for others. He wants us to encourage those who may be hurting and giving to those in need.
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give,
not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God
loves a cheerful giver. ~ 2 Corinthians 9:7
Our family has many great traditions during this time of year, but my favorite is following this challenge. We sit down once day and we work on the activities together. My kids love seeing how they can be a blessing to someone else even though they are still young.
I pray this Christmas Challenge is a blessing to you and your families. I hope you are able to participate and give of yourself and your time this Christmas.
Here is Day One of the Challenge......
