What You Do

What You Say
“Look what I have! What is it? Yes, it’s a star. We heard about a spe-cial star in our story today. Who followed the star? That’s right! Let’s follow the star just like the wise men did!”
Say, “God put a special star in the sky to show the wise men where Jesus was. They knew Jesus was very special, and they wanted to give Him gifts. God loves us so much that He gave us Jesus! Jesus is God’s Son! Why is Jesus special? Jesus is God’s Son!”
“Dear God, Thank You for loving us so much that You gave us Jesus to be our friend forever. Thank You that we get to spend time learning about You and how much You love us. I pray that we will always know how much You love us and that Jesus wants to be our friend forever. Jesus truly is the best gift ever. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
