“And now I know that this love which thou hast had for the children of men is charity; wherefore, except men shall have charity they cannot inherit that place which thou hast prepared in the mansions of thy Father.” – Ether 12:34
“Charity is having patience with someone who has let us down. t is resisting the impulse to become offended easily. It is accepting weaknesses and shortcomings. It is accepting people as they truly are.” – Thomas S. Monson
