Daily Devotionals by Ardith Keef

        Please do not tell your children that there is a Santa Claus. It is a lie and it is not harmless.
    You may think it is fun, but it is a tool used by Satan to plant in a child's mind that what you have told him about Jesus may not be true.
     What a cruel thing to have a parent convince a child that there is an unseen being who will reward him for behavior and that Santa is the giver of presents. That robs the child of the earliest possibility of giving to others, and lays a foundation of mistrust.
     Children need to know the truth and they need to trust their elders. Fun and joking are great and have an appropriate place, but there are children whose parents go to great lengths to lead them to believe something that is totally fictitious.
  " God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all." God never lies to us. He is a Father to be trusted completely. He will not mislead us to amuse Himself or preserve tradition.
      Be Godly parents. Teach your children the truth and nothing else.
