Bible Story:  Luke 2:1-7. Jesus is born! Even though Jesus was born where the animals stayed, God took care of all the details. The Savior of the World was born, and God’s compassion for us was on full display.

Bottom Line: God gave us the greatest gift. God had been planning a rescue since the very beginning. Jesus was God’s greatest gift to make it possible for all people to be with God forever.

Key Question: What are some ways you can give? When we experience God’s life-changing compassion, we can’t help but want to share that compassion with others.

Extra Memory Verse: Deuteronomy 15:11 NIV.“There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your fellow Israelites who are poor and needy in your land.”
