A Light to the World

"As we contemplate how we are going to spend our money to buy gifts this holiday season let us plan also for how we will spend our time in order to help bring the true spirit of Christmas into the lives of others.

The Savior gave freely to all. And His gifts were of value beyond measure. Throughout His ministry, He blessed the sick, restored sight to the blind, made the deaf to hear, and the halt and the lame to walk. He gave cleanliness to the unclean. He restored breath to the lifeless. He gave hope to the despairing, and He sowed light in the darkness.

He gave us His love, His service, and His life.

What is the spirit we feel at Christmastime? It is His spirit—the spirit of Christ."

~ President Thomas S. Monson
The Spirit We Feel at Christmastime  New Era  December 2010

This quote is from a true prophet of God.  One of the things I love the most about my faith is that our leaders encourage us to look outward and bless others lives.  May this thought touch your heart as it has mine, and bless your lives too.
