Check out today's featured devotional article.
As an eight-year-old boy I remember singing the line in Silent Night, “round yon virgin, mother and child” and thinking, “What is a virgin?”

When I asked adults the question, “What is a virgin?” they just avoided answering it.

I feel like we do children a disservice when we don’t answer their questions.

Admittedly the virgin birth is an awkward subject with kids, but it is one the things that makes Jesus different from any other man. Jesus is the only one who was born without sin, because he was born of a virgin.

This is how I teach kids about the virgin birth.

I use a Nativity scene. Place the nativity scene at the front of class, or on a coffee table in the living room, if you are teaching your own children at home.

I pick up baby Jesus and ask, "Can anyone tell me who this is?"

"That’s right, it’s baby Jesus."

Then I pick up Mary. "Who is this?"

"This is Mary, the mother of Jesus."

Next I pick up Joseph. "Who is this?"

"This is Joseph. Is the Jesus' daddy?"

No, he is not Jesus’ daddy. Jesus is the Son of God. God is His Father, not Joseph.It takes a mommy and a daddy to make a baby. One of the things that make Jesus unique was that He was born of a virgin. God was Jesus’ father, not Joseph. Jesus is the only man who was born without sin, because he was born of a virgin.
