A thought from the scriptures

Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. - Matt. 25:40

In his April 1990 general conference address, Elder Richard P. Lindsay of the Seventy noted that examples of charity are not restricted to geographic location, to age, or gender, or station of life. "Such acts of kindness and love of fellowman seek no praise or reward and are often performed within the humble homes and from the loving hearts of the Lord's devoted servants," Elder Lindsay said."In these challenging times . . . the need to `minister unto the least of these' of our Father's children is so great. How much we need the gift of discernment and wisdom and charity to know how to really reach down and lift up our brothers and sisters. . . .

"I pray that day by day we will strive more diligently to be about our Father's business (Luke 2:49), to love and to serve our fellowmen - to feed the hungry, and clothe the naked, and comfort those that mourn (Matt. 25:37-39), to hold up the hands that hang down, and to strengthen the feeble knees (D&C 81:5) - to believe and live the Savior's doctrine, to follow after Him and put first in our lives the things of His kingdom."
