A long standing tradition in our family is that of making gingerbread houses. It dates back so far that I cannot remember a year when we didn’t make them. In more recent years, we have extended this tradition to include other families as well and often the decorating is preceded by a chalk art presentation. It is definitely a highlight of the Christmas season.
Though the basic structure of all the houses is the same and there are similarities, each house turns out unique. I’m reminded of how God created each of us “with the same mould,” making for definite similarities in all of us, yet each of us is unique with a specially designed purpose.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10
