Christmas. It brings out the best and the worst of our kids, doesn’t it? I remember a Christmas when we told our kids we weren’t going to do Christmas presents anymore if they couldn’t be thankful for what they got. Then, to our surprise, our middle daughter came to us one Christmas and said, “Whatever it is you spend on me for Christmas, can we buy gifts for kids who need it instead?” We were floored. So, we did. My wife and daughter went shopping and bought toys, clothes, and things any kid her age would want. Did our daughter go without that Christmas? No way. But it taught us a lesson. We need to do more for others. Are you doing more this year? Out of the mouths of babes we can learn a bunch.
