What Shall We Give Him?

What Shall We Give Him?

That is the question we asked ourselves!  After all it is His birthday – so what gift can we give to Him?
We read this precious story of Papa Panov who also wanted to give Jesus a gift.
He discovered the truth from Matthew 25:37-40 
The people asked …when had they…
fed Him 
or given Him drink, 
or invited Him in, 
or clothed Him, 
or taken care of Him when He was sick, 
or visited Him in prison?
He answered them – 
‘I tell you the truth, 
just as you did it for one of the least of these 
brothers or sisters of mine, 
you did it for me.”
So we knew how to give Him a gift for His birthday!  
Give to the poor…
(I had requested 10 Christmas catalogues from World Vision knowing where this lesson was going to go.)
We partnered up and went through the catalogue looking for gifts to give.
This changed all our hearts!
Here they are looking at pictures of children with so much less than they have and having empathy and compassion toward them!
They took the catalogues home and asked their parents how they could earn money to give.
We collected our money for a few weeks.  Then on our Christmas party day, we counted all our money.
Once we knew how much we had to spend – we went back to our World Vision catalogue with a partner.  We found 1 – 3 things that we would like to give and cut it out of the catalogue.
Then we shared what we wanted to give and why we thought that gift was important.  Let’s just say, my eyes were not dry as the kids explained why their choice was important. 
When all had shared – we voted as a class!
We gave Him a gift!  A gift we know He would love!
medicine
blankets
soccer balls
education
safety for children
share of a well for a village
share of a home for orphans
clothing
That class gave me a gift also!
I love goats!  This little goat went to a poor family in Africa – in my name.  
Best gift I ever received from a class!
You may not teach in a Christian school, but you could still do a project like this with World Vision or Samaritan’s Purse.  
It’s a great family project too!
It definitely promotes Kindness, Caring, Empathy and so much more!
