December 2015 Visiting Teaching Message

I've never published a visiting teaching post for the current month so late in the month, but this month's visiting teaching message is perfect for Christmas, so I'm going to go ahead anyway.  This month's lesson is: Divine Attributes of Jesus Christ: Compassionate and Kind.  

When I read the quote by President Monson ("Let us open the door of our hearts, that He--the living example of true compassion--may enter") I knew I wanted to create something indici a door.  I printed this image on a 4x6 piece of photo paper, with a landscape orientation.  Then I folded the sides in, to meet at the middle, and cut the top and bottom, to form a heart.  I glued red cardstock on the back of the photo paper, and wrote the quote on the front.  

Photo:  the front of the handout, a red heart with the caption, "Let us open the door of our hearts, that He--the living example of true compassion--may enter."

Photo:  the inner part of the handout, a photo of baby Jesus smiling up at Mary and Joseph
Doesn't that message about sum up Christmas?  Jesus Christ came to earth to show compassion on all of us.  His mission opened the door to salvation--and if we open the door to Him, we can receive his wonderful gift.  

Merry Christmas!
