Your children need your presence more than your presents. (Jesse Jackson, social activist)
As you work through your Christmas gift list this month and consider what the children will want, consider this good advice. Gifts are an appropriate way to express love, but they may be quickly lost or broken. What really lasts is the sense of belonging that children will develop with parents who are there through the year as well as on holidays.
The godly walk with integrity; blessed are their children who follow them (Proverbs 20:7)
