Is Black Friday good for kids?

Posted on 11/25/2016 by Greg Yoder

It’s Black Friday. I think it's an ominous day, myselfa day when millions head to the malls and shopping centers to get the best deals possible for Christmas. I don’t like crowds, and I dislike shopping even more, so I don’t look forward to this day at all. For other people, though, it’s a family tradition. Some families make a whole day of it, filled with breakfast dates, shopping, lunch, and then crashing at home afterward. Question: is this a good day for our kids? What are we teaching them? I think it’s both good and bad. It’s good if we teach our kids how to be responsible in our shopping and gift giving. It’s bad if we make Christmas more about materialism than Christ. Set our minds on things above. 

Suggested Reading: Colossians 3:2
