I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.—Revelation 2:19
It takes great love to feel the needs of someone else more than your own. That is the pure love of Christ for the person you nurture. That feeling of charity comes from the person chosen to be the nurturer having qualified for the effects of the Atonement of Jesus Christ.—Henry B. Eyring
