But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.—Matthew 5:44
Knowing that we are all children of God gives us a vision of the worth of others and the ability to rise above prejudice. He gave this command to love, and He promises His help as we seek to obey it.—Dallin H. Oaks
