Just For the Season or All Year Long???

Inviting the Savior Into Our Home
Yes, Jesus is the 'Reason for the Season', but shouldn't we remember Him all year?  Shouldn't He play an important role in our lives and in our families.  Do we invite God the Father and Jesus our Savior into our homes and strive to live the way they would want us to?  What gift could we give to them?  “The submission of one’s will is really the only uniquely personal thing we have to place on God’s altar. The many other things we ‘give,’ … are actually the things He has already given or loaned to us. However, when you and I finally submit ourselves, by letting our individual wills be swallowed up in God’s will, then we are really giving something to Him! It is the only possession which is truly ours to give!" - Neal A. Maxwell
