The Old Shoemaker


    In this classic story by Leo Tolstoy, a humble old shoemaker discovers that by helping those around him, he is really serving the Savior.

    One night, the Savior told Martin to look for him on the street the next day. Martin watched for the Savior, but instead saw three people who were each in need of something he could give.

    Though he was disappointed that he had not seen the Savior, Martin soon realized that he had seen the Savior in the faces of the people he helped, and that by serving them, he had served Jesus Christ.

    This Christmas, look for ways you can show love to the Savior, Jesus Christ, by serving those in need.
