Motivational Monday: Christmastime, The Most Beloved Seasons of the Year

President Ezra Taft Benson taught that "perhaps one of the greatest things about this wonderful Christmas season we celebrate is that it increases our sensitivity to things spiritual, to things of God." Indeed, Christmastime is the most beloved seasons of the year. Through music, service, pageantry, and art, families throughout the world celebrate Christmas.

It prompts us to be more tolerant and giving, more conscious of others, more generous and genuine, more filled with hope and charity and love - all Christlike attributes. No wonder the spirit of Christmas is such that it touches the hearts of people the world over. Because for at least a time, increased attention and devotion is turned toward our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ ...

.....Let us commit to give a most meaningful gift to the Lord. Let us give Him our lives, our sacrifices. Those who do so will discover that He can make a lot more out of their lives than they can. Whosoever will lose his life in the service of God will find eternal life.

Without Christ there would be no Christmas, and without Christ there can be no fullness of joy. It is my testimony that the Babe of Bethlehem, Jesus Christ, is the one perfect guide, the one perfect example. Only by emulating Him and adhering to His eternal truth can we realize peace on earth and good will toward all. There is no other way. He is the way, the Truth, and the Light.
