Christmas on Purpose: Change

Keep change on hand for the Salvation Army kettle.  My kids love to drop some in, I love to also.  Especially when the person ringing the bell is enthusiastic and happy.  Because you know they aren’t always that way. 
But it’s long been an important thing to have change on hand for the kids, because they always ask and I want them to know the joy of giving too.  It’s simple but it’s an easy way to remind my kids that Christmas isn’t about us, but about others.  And that not everyone has everything they need, or even want, at Christmas.  It’s a way to extend ourselves to others, and a way to share the love of Jesus with others too.
