Tomorrow’s Halloween. Don’t freak out. “The word Halloween literally means the evening before All Hallows Day or All Saint’s Day, celebrated on November 1.” It goes back 1900 years—when the Celtic druids celebrated it as their new year—where the dead mingled with the living. Christian missionaries used the day to show the Light to those living in darkness. While you might hate Halloween, I hope you’ll stop hating it. While it’s a dark holiday, use it to show the light to those who are lost. It’s not every day the Lord brings the lost to your doorstep. When kids are most open to the Gospel, hand out a Keys for Kids devotional or a tract. It’s a seed that may make an eternal difference.
