The Farmyard. National Trust. He taught his people, and he teaches us, that the overwhelming gift of forgiveness that we receive should make us feel an overflowing generosity toward others:. And has he suffered that ye have begged in vain?
Nay; he has poured out his Spirit upon you, and has caused that your hearts should be filled with joy, and has caused that your mouths should be stopped that ye could not find utterance, so exceedingly great was your joy. You have already felt the joy of giving alms and receiving them.
That joy in this life is a glimpse of what we will feel in the life to come if we are generous here out of faith in God. The Savior is our great exemplar. At the Christmas season we contemplate anew who He is and what generosity He extended to us by coming into the world to be our Savior.
As the Son of God, born to Mary, He had the power to resist all temptation to sin. He lived a perfect life so that He could be the infinite sacrifice, the unblemished Lamb promised from the foundation of the world see Revelation He suffered the agony of the guilt of our sins and all the sins of the children of Heavenly Father that we might be forgiven and go home clean. He gave us that gift at a price we cannot fathom.
It was a gift He did not need for Himself; He was without the need for forgiveness.
The joy and gratitude we feel for His gift now will be magnified and will last forever as we honor and worship Him in our heavenly home. The Christmas season gives us encouragement to remember Him and His infinite generosity. Remembering His generosity will help us feel and respond to the inspiration that there is someone who needs our help, and it will let us see the hand of God reaching to us when He sends someone to succor us, as He so often does.

There is joy in giving and in receiving the generosity that God inspires, especially at Christmas. There is another glimpse of heaven that becomes easier to see at Christmastime. It is of light. A new star was visible in both the Eastern and the Western Hemispheres. It led the Wise Men to the child in Bethlehem. Even wicked King Herod recognized the sign; he feared it because he was wicked.
Three days of light without darkness was the sign God gave to the descendants of Lehi, heralding the birth of His Son. We remember at Christmastime not only the light that announced the birth of Christ into the world but also the light that comes from Him. Many witnesses have confirmed that light. Paul testified that he saw it on the road to Damascus:.
The boy Joseph Smith testified that he saw a marvelous light in a grove of trees in Palmyra, New York, at the beginning of the Restoration:. When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. Hear Him! Such light will be visible in our heavenly home. It will bring us joy then. Yet even in this life you have been blessed with a part of that wonderful experience, through the Light of Christ. Every person born into the world receives that light as a gift see Moroni Think of the times you have had an experience that makes you a witness that the Light of Christ is real and precious.
You will recognize from this wonderfully assuring scripture that you have been guided by that light:. In a world that is being darkened by evil images and dishonest messages, you have been blessed to recognize more easily the flashes of light and truth.

You have learned for yourself that light grows brighter as you receive it gladly. It will become brighter and brighter until the perfect day when we will be in the presence of the Source of the light.
We use lights to celebrate the Christmas season. Our worship of the Savior and our service for Him brings light into our lives and into the lives of those around us. We can with confidence set a goal to make this Christmas brighter than the last and each year that follows brighter still. The trials of mortality may increase in intensity, yet for us, darkness need not increase if we focus our eyes more singly on the light that streams down on us as we follow the Master.
He will lead us and help us along the path that leads upward to the home for which we yearn. There have been times, often at Christmas, when we have felt parts of what we will experience when we at last come home to the Father who loves us and answers our prayers and to the Savior who has lighted our lives and lifted us up.
