And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God. —Mosiah 2:17
I would like to invite each of you to do at least one Samaritan-like act this coming week. I promise that if you will extend yourself beyond what is easy to do, you will feel so good inside that kindness will start to become a part of your everyday life. You’ll see what benevolence can bring joy and unity to your home, your class, your ward, and your school. —Mary N. Cook
