Nativity Countdown #14

Except that it's white and not clear, this is a twin to the nativity set featured yesterday, with the three kings coming to give gifts to the Christ-child. Gifts are a huge part of our Christmas celebration and traditions, and that's okay. They remind us of the wonderful gift we've each received in the life and mission of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Gifts are often mentioned in the annual First Presidency Devotional, and they were again this year.

"It seems appropriate that giving and receiving gifts is a central part of Christmas. After all, we are celebrating the matchless gift of God’s Son, the Savior Jesus Christ. Of course, our gifts to each other will never compare to this gift, but I believe that the joy of giving and receiving gifts can turn our hearts toward the gifts of God.”
