Praise Break

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,  “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” Luke 2:13-14

Have you ever had a moment where you had to just stop and have a praise break? That’s what happened here! The news that was being shared was so big, so astounding, so wonderful, that they had to stop and sing about it. God’s great rescue plan was happening—the long-awaited Messiah was here!

Here are two questions to reflect on and discuss as a family or on your own:

  1. God sent His Son to save the world. How does this news excite and comfort you today?

  2. Where in your life do you need to rely on God’s grace instead of your own strength?

Pray: “God, when I think about what You’ve done for me, I am overwhelmed with feelings of gratitude and thankfulness. I praise You right now. I worship You for who You are.”

As a Family: Ask your children what their favorite Christmas song is, then ask why they think people sing. Read Luke 2:13-14 again and talk about why the angels sang with joy when Jesus was born.
