The final message
Like Scrooge, President Monson hopes every person will see the error of his or her ways and learn happiness can come to us if we forget self and worldly gain, concentrating instead on helping others and learning to embrace the love of family and friends. As Scrooge declared at the last, President Monson quoted in his recent devotional message, “I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all year, I will live in the past, present and future, the spirits of all three shall strive within me. I will not shutout the lessons that they teach.”
“The spirit of Christmas is the spirit of love and of generosity and of goodness. It illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world's busy life and become more interested in people than in things," President Monson said. “When we keep the spirit of Christmas, we keep the spirit of Christ.”
