Is anyone else loving the #LIGHTtheWORLD campaign? I love it so much that I want to share it with those of you who may not have heard of it yet. Brighten your Christmas! #LIGHTtheWORLD
On the 1st of December I sat down with my kids and watched this video from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We loved it and hope you do too!
Throughout the month of November I thought a lot about the kind of person I am right now compared to the person I want to become. I have recognized some gaps! These thought gave me a greater desire than ever to become more consistently loving, compassionate, and kind. I have been considering different ways I can use my time, skills and resources to reach out and serve others.
When I saw this video I admittedly cried! The spirit that I felt as I watched Christ serving in such simple, yet loving ways, was a great reminder to me that service can be simple. It also reminded me of why Christ served. Jesus Christ served because of His love! He did not serve to make a political statement or to prove that He was just a really great guy. He did not serve because of others expectations. He did not serve for power or popularity. He served because of His eternal love for His Father in Heaven and for His Father’s children, us! I am so grateful for His service and the motives behind that service.
The #LIGHTtheWORLD campaign has given me a new perspective on how and why to serve. The last few days I have asked myself many times, “How would Jesus help this person?”, or “How would Jesus comfort this child?” I have A LOT of work to do to more consistently serve like the Savior. We all do! But I am excited to continue making attempts throughout this month and beyond. I know that Jesus Christ wants me to experience the joy of serving for the right reasons like He does.
