What Shall We Give.

This song was featured in the Christmas Devotional by the First Presidency.
It's become one of my favorites.

You can review the whole devotional HERE.
Some things I learned:
1. Rejoice in the Birth of Our Savior
2. Ponder His Influence in Our Lives Today
Think of His gifts for us each day.
And those we can give to Him through giving to others.
3. Look Steadfastly for His Coming.
And President Monson ended the devotional with these words:

"Let it be a time of prayers for peace, for the preservation of free principles, and for the protection of those who are far from us. Let it be a time of forgetting self and finding time for others. Let it be a time for discarding the meaningless and for stressing the true values. Let it be a time of peace because we have found peace in His teachings.

Most of all, let it be a time to remember the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, that we may share in the song of the angels, the gladness of the shepherds, and the worship of the Wise Men.

My brothers and sisters, may the spirit of love which comes at Christmastime fill our homes and our lives and linger there long after the tree is down and the lights are put away for another year. This is my prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, the Lord, amen."
