“If thou lovest me thou shalt serve me and keep all my commandments.” —Doctrine & Covenants 42:29
“Sometimes we think we have to do something grand and heroic to “count” as serving our neighbors. Yet simple acts of service can have profound effects on others—as well as on ourselves. What did the Savior do? Through His supernal gifts of the Atonement and Resurrection—he also smiled at, talked with, walked with, listened to, made time for, encouraged, taught, fed, and forgave.” —Jean B. Bingham
