Christmas Can Change Your Life

Note: Today’s devotional is offered as a resource that you can use with your family to help make the most of the Christmas season focus.

“Prove by the way you live that you have repented of your sins and turned to God.” —Matthew 3: 8 (NLT)

One of my all-time favorite Christmas movies is The Muppet Christmas Carol. It retains the same story as the Dickens classic, but it’s much funnier. The message that it’s not too late to change your life rings loud and clear. So, why not watch the movie and do some reflection on your life? There’s no better time than Christmastime, as we celebrate God’s greatest gift to us, to make a decision to change! Know that the power of Christ is present to help you!

We celebrate Christmas because God sent Jesus into the world to show us our need to change our lives and to follow the example of His life.

FAMILY TIME:
Watch The Muppet Christmas Carol with your family and use the questions below to debrief after the movie is over.

GOING DEEPER:
1. What lessons can we learn from the things that Scrooge experienced?

2. Is it ever too late to change your mind about how you live your life? Why or why not?

3. If you were to choose one thing that you would change about your life, what would it be?
