This past Sunday, each OPBCKids family was given a copy of the December Devotional, A Better than Anything Christmas: Explore How Jesus Makes Christmas Better by Barbara Reaoch. There are a few left to be picked up this Sunday.
Each day until Christmas, I will post a Scripture Reading and a couple of questions from the book, as well as one of my favorite Advent/ Christmas songs to set our hearts toward Jesus this season.

What do these verses show that Mary knew about herself and what did she know about God?
MERCY is when God doesn’t treat us as we deserve, but shows us kindness and grace even though we sin against Him.
Jesus is the way that God shows His mercy to sinners like us. Jesus came to take our sins to the cross because we could never be good enough to deserve God’s love and forgiveness. Why is God’s mercy such an amazing Gift?
PRAY: Thank God for His great mercy shown to us in Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. Thank Jesus for taking the punishment for sin that we deserve. As God to help you turn away from sin and to trust in Jesus.
