December visiting teaching is either the easiest month to get done or the hardest, it depends on how you look at it! We are all sooo busy during the holidays, but dropping off a message and a plate of treats, or a gingerbread house kit for the kids and making sure that your sisters have everything they need can be done in just a few minutes. If you and your sisters have time to sit and visit, even better…or if you can, take an hour or two to gift them service, like babysitting while they go Christmas shopping, helping them clean the house, or dropping off some paper plates, cups and a pizza for dinner on a busy weeknight.
This year they are focusing on attributes of the Savior. I LOVE this! Every month a new attribute to work on. The September visiting teaching attribute of the Savior is COMPASSION.
Here is a quote from this month’s message:
“Jesus provided us many examples of compassionate concern,” said President Thomas S. Monson. “The crippled man at the pool of Bethesda; the woman taken in adultery; the woman at Jacob’s well; the daughter of Jairus; Lazarus, brother of Mary and Martha—each represented a casualty on the Jericho road. Each needed help.
“To the cripple at Bethesda, Jesus said, ‘Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.’ To the sinful woman came the counsel, ‘Go, and sin no more. To help her who came to draw water, He provided a well of water ‘springing up into everlasting life.’ To the dead daughter of Jairus came the command, ‘Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.’ To the entombed Lazarus, ‘Come forth.’
“The Savior has always shown unlimited capacity for compassion. … Let us open the door of our hearts, that He—the living example of true compassion—may enter.”
