And they taught, and did minister one to another; and they had all things common among them, every man dealing justly, one with another.—3 Nephi 26:19
[Jesus] smiled at, talked with, walked with, listened to, made time for, encouraged, taught, fed, and forgave. He served family and friends, neighbors and strangers alike, and He invited acquaintances and loved ones to enjoy the rich blessings of His gospel. Those “simple” acts of service and love provide a template for our ministering today.—Jean B. Bingham
