Daily Living Made Easier

I love to share with my grandkids some of the many prophecies that were given hundreds of years before Christ came, that were later fulfilled by his birth, life, and death. One of them is from Micah 5:2, specifically concerning His birth: 

"As for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Too little to be among the clans of Judah, From you One will go forth for Me to be ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long ago, From the days of eternity."

Excitingly, the fulfillment for this is recorded in several places in the New Testament, including John 7:42, 

"Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the descendants of David, and from Bethlehem, the village where David was?"

The coloring page for this might be a tad boring, but I thought I'd share it with y'all. I know some of my older grandkids might enjoy coloring in each of the letters. How about yours? For that matter, some of our senior parents might enjoy them, either to send to great-grandkids or to try their hand at coloring as well.

These are great Scriptures to share with our grandkids when singing one of the many lovely versions of O Little Town of Bethlehem, aren't they? Such a fun and lovely way of encouraging them in their faith in the Lord as well as leaving a spiritual legacy in their hearts and minds! A great way to encourage our whole families, actually, including ourselves!
