Love the giver more than the gift. (Brigham Young, late religious leader)

With Christmas just two days away, the excitement may be building—especially in the hearts of the children as they anticipate the gifts they’ve asked for. Parents hesitate to remind them to be thankful, hoping their children will be spontaneous in showing their appreciation. Have you given thanks to the One who initiated Christmas? He was the original Giver.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son. (John 3:16)
