Around this time of year many of us put up Christmas Trees. Have any of you put up a Christmas Tree yet? What kinds of things do you decorate it with? (Allow for responses.)

(Show the star.)

Often times we will put a star up on the very top of the Christmas Tree. Do you know why we put a star on the top of our tree? In Matthew 2:2 we read that the wise men followed a very bright star that was shining in the sky and it led them to Jesus. So, we put a star on the top of our tree to remind us that the star lead the wise men to him.

God wants us to be like the star and lead people to Jesus too. We can let our light shine brightly so those people who are seeking the savior can find him. Are you shining brightly for Jesus? Are you pointing the way to him?
