A Christmas Gift Idea

Let me give you a great gift idea for Christmas.  It is a gift that will cost you nothing but an hour or so of your time.  It will bless your entire family.  It will encourage the leaders in your church.  It will serve young parents.  Jesus will consider it a personal favor.  And, I can’t think of any better way to get into the Christmas spirit.

Here is my idea.  Call your church office today. Volunteer for several members of your family, and men you can do this too, to work in the church nursery during the Christmas Eve service at your church.  Make that call today.  Offer to serve in the nursery at Christmas time.

We are already well into December.  Your nursery may already be staffed.  There may not be any room in the Inn for you to care for babies.  But, your nursery coordinator may still be able to find a spot for you to work.  And, I am serious about this; it could be one of the highlights of your Christmas season.

If you do work in the nursery, treasure the opportunity to hold a little baby.  Pray for that baby.  Pray that he or she would have a great life.  Remember: Jesus said whatever you do for one of the least of these, you do as a direct favor for Him.  And, consider, when Jesus became humanity, when He broke into space and time, he did so in a manger where there wasn’t even room in the Inn, much less a nursery.  When a young couple thanks you for caring for their baby, pray for them even as you are handing them their little one across the nursery counter.
