Graciously Receive Gifts From Heaven | 16 December 2023

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! During Christmas time, we usually emphasize the significance of giving, but it’s equally important to receive. The most precious gift of all is the gift of the Savior and His atonement. Have we completely accepted it in our lives?

Check back tomorrow for more inspiration.

Scripture

For what doth it profit a man if a gift is bestowed upon him, and he receive not the gift? Behold, he rejoices not in that which is given unto him, neither rejoices in him who is the giver of the gift.Doctrine & Covenants 88:33

Quote

Every gift that is offered to us—especially a gift that comes from the heart—is an opportunity to build or strengthen a bond of love. When we are good and grateful receivers, we open a door to deepen our relationship with the giver of the gift. But when we fail to appreciate or even reject a gift, we not only hurt those who extend themselves to us, but in some way we harm ourselves as well.Dieter F. Uchtdorf
