A friend gave me a copy of The Action Bible, a super-hero-type colored comics version of the whole Bible. I don’t usually read from it, but I got it out the other day to read the Christmas story to my almost 8- and 6-year old granddaughters, Raegan and Ruby. The pictures captivated these girls and we got all the way through without any distractions. Obviously, to make room for all the action figures, they leave a lot out, but they did do a good job summarizing the story.

I was pleased that they interrupted me several times to fill in the blanks with how the whole story comes together. They knew there were important parts of the story left out. And, the dramatic color picture of the blonde Angel Gabriel got them off chasing a rabbit about fallen angels and how ugly they were. Since this was a bedtime story, I didn’t want them going to bed thinking about ugly fallen angels that killed babies, so we wrapped up the story talking about how Jesus came so that bad, ugly people could become beautiful people. So, I think I salvaged the end of the story.

The Christmas story should be a bit of action in our lives. There is a good and bad spirit in the world. And I want to make sure I influence the good side, not the bad. Merry Christmas!
