I’ve read a couple articles recently focusing on the gifts given during Christmas time. We give each other gifts to express our love and appreciation for one another.
The wise men brought gifts to the Savior when He was born to show their reverence and love.
Jesus Christ offers us the gift of hope. “And what is it that ye shall hope for? Behold I say unto you that ye shall have hope through the atonement of Christ and the power of his resurrection, to be raised unto life eternal, and this because of your faith in him according to the promise” (Moroni 7:41).
The gifts of immortality and eternal life are available to us only through the Savior and His Atonement.
All of these gifts are centered in the gift of Christ’s birth. His birth is an expression of the love our Heavenly Father has for all of us.
The final sentence of the Living Christ document appropriately expresses the spirit of the season. “God be thanked for the matchless gift of His divine Son.”
Merry Christmas everyone!
