A thought from the scriptures

For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. - Gal. 5:13-14"I suggest to you that the Lord has prepared a touchstone for you and me, an outward measurement of inward discipleship that marks our faithfulness and will survive the fires yet to come," said President Howard W. Hunter of the Council of the Twelve in the October 1986 general conference.

"Eternal life, God's life, the life we are seeking, is rooted in two commandments. . . . Love God and love your neighbor. The two work together; they are inseparable. In the highest sense they may be considered as synonymous. And they are commandments that each of us can live. . . .

"[The LordT will measure our devotion to Him by how we love and serve our fellowmen. What kind of mark are we leaving on the Lord's touchstone? Are we truly good neighbors?

". . . These two virtues, love and service, are required of us if we are to be good neighbors and find peace in our lives. . . . The touchstone of compassion is a measure of our discipleship. . . ."
