The Gift You Cannot Buy

By now almost all of the gifts are purchased. The planning is about over. Now comes the actual giving. However, there is one essential gift that you cannot buy, but it will make the biggest impact of any gift that you give. This one special gift is giving God's word to your children. The best way to present the this gift to your children is to have that Word dwell richly within you. A full, energetic relationship of Christ's word dwelling in your heart is a magnificent gift to your children. See Deuteronomy 6:5-7 and Colossians 3:16.

Love your children enough to do a personal evaluation of just how precious the Word of Christ is to you. Are you thrilled to open your Bible? Seriously, how much time is given in your life to knowing God's Word so that you will be able to be a faithful shepherd to your family? God wants you to adorn the life of your children with his precious word.

Simply confronting behavior isn't really much of a gift!
