“The Savior’s Gift of Love,” Friend, Dec. 2002, 2

A Christmas Message from the First Presidency to the Children of the World:
The Savior’s Gift of Love

Christmas is a time of giving and receiving. It is a time when we express our love for others through thoughtful gifts or acts of kindness and service.

Many wonderful gifts cannot be seen but can be felt. One such gift that each of us enjoys is the boundless love that comes from our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. In turn, we love our families and friends and those around us. We show our love for others by serving them. One way we show our love to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ is by keeping the commandments.

Our testimony is that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live. They love us and are our Friends. May our Heavenly Father bless children everywhere with the peace that comes from knowing that He loves them and that Jesus is our Savior and Redeemer.

With love,
The First Presidency
