Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! A gift that never stops giving is considered the perfect gift and Jesus is the greatest gift of all.
Behold, I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I am the same that came unto mine own, and mine own received me not. I am the light which shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehendeth it not.—Doctrine and Covenants 6:21
Wouldn’t a gift that never stops giving be considered a perfect gift? First, a perfect gift would reveal something about the giver of the gift. Second, it would reflect something about the needs of the person receiving the gift. And finally, the gift, if it was really the perfect gift, would hold its value not just as time goes on but forever. Doesn’t our beloved Savior, even the Savior of the world, meet these three requirements?—Joy D. Jones
