The Meaning of the Candy Cane

My Mom and I went to a Christmas "Mugs and Muffins" at church and they had this as a party favor for everyone. I have not seen this message before, so I wanted to share it with you!

The Meaning of the Candy Cane

Hard Candy

Reminds us that Jesus is like a "rock", strong and dependable

Read Psalm 31:3

Peppermint Flavor

Is like the gift of spices from the wisemen.

Read Matthew 2:11

White Candy

Stands for Jesus as the holy, sinless Son of God.

Read John 1:7


Is like a staff used by shepherds caring for sheep. Jesus is our "Good Shepherd"

Read John 10:1-18, 27-30

The Letter "J"

Is for the name of Jesus, our Savior.

Read Matthew 1:21

The Color Red

Is for God's love that sent Jesus, and Jesus' love in giving His life for us on the cross.

Read John 3:16 and Revelation 1:5

The Stripes

Remind us of Jesus' suffering-His crown of thorns, the wounds in His hands and feet, and the cross on which he died.

Read John 19:1-30

I hope you get a Blessing out of this! Merry Christmas!!
