FHE Lesson {A bit of Christmas Everyday}



This lesson inspired by A bit of Christmas Everyday December 2014 Friend Magazine


Opening Song: Favourite Christmas Carol


Opening Prayer: Child


Lesson:

Why do we give gifts at Christmas?
{three wise men bought gifts for baby Jesus, the celebrate his birth}

Just as we love giving and getting presents at Christmas we should also remember to give a gift to Jesus.

Read Mosiah 2:17
And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God.

How do we give a gift to Jesus and God?

When we serve others we are serving God and Jesus. It can be our gift to Jesus.


Everyone in our family already gives gifts of service to God.


Read out some 'gifts' and have children guess who is giving that gift

This person does their Home Teaching

This person pays tithing

This person looks after little children who wouldn't survive if alone

This person helps others if they fall down

This person loves to give hugs

This person is friendly to others

This person gives money to the poor

{Insert service qualities that match your family members}


By Serving Others and Jesus it can be like having a bit of Christmas Everyday.


Activity:

Use these Gift Printable and write a gift you will give to Jesus this Christmas.

Write out all the gifts you have already done and put them in a stocking. Add to the stocking as the days go on and then read out all the gifts you have given to Jesus on Christmas Eve {or the first gift Christmas Morning}


Closing Song: Christmas Carol

Closing Prayer: Child

Treat: Gift box of chocolates - to SHARE!
