How much have you been able to give to others and to the Savior this last year? As this year’s Christmas approaches, can you say that you have followed the Savior more this year, and have served others more? Make that your gift to the Savior this year.
Have we gone to the temple more, have we given more of ourselves, have we helped make others’ lives better? That is the true spirit of Christmas, and should impel us to be better all year through.
There is still time to serve. As the Prophet has said, “There are hearts to gladden. There are kind words to say. There are gifts to be given. There are deeds to be done. There are souls to be saved. “
So take some time. Think of those who are sad, lonely, need help and help them. Take an extra trip to the temple to help someone else return to the presence of the Father. Share the gospel in whatever way you can, and you will catch the true spirit of Christmas.
As the Prophet has said, you need only take off the last syllable of Christmas and it becomes the spirit of Christ.
May we live with that this Christmas season, and all year round.
