While Christmas brings a lot of joy, it can also bring a lot of frustration—especially when there’s that one thing all the kids fight over. Maybe it’s to put that special ornament on the Christmas tree. One Mom wrote to me saying a special Christmas ornament was broken because one of their kids got angry at a brother, threw a pillow, hit the Christmas tree—and the ornament broke. If it’s an heirloom, that can ruin your festive spirit not just this year, but in the years to come. Remember, it’s not something you can take with you. Use it to teach your kids that our actions have consequences. Sin has consequences. As believers, yes, it’s already been forgiven—but God can use our sin to draw us closer to Him. 

Suggested Reading: Romans 8:28, Habakkuk 1:5-11
