Merry Christmas!
 
A couple of years ago I shared some of our favorite nativities during the month of December. The past couple of years, I decided to highlight some Christ-like attributes. Maybe next year I’ll combine the two. We’ll see. One of the reasons I display nativity sets is to remind me to strive to increase these characteristics of our Savior in my own life. Maybe I should leave at least one out the entire year. What do you think?
Although not linked to specific individuals – because we all should be working on developing all of these qualities – here’s the list we’ve reviewed. Selecting one or two to add to a New Year’s Resolution list would be a great idea. Which should I choose?
