If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother:
But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth. - Deut. 15:7-8"Service with all of our heart and mind is a high challenge for all of us," said Elder Dallin H. Oaks in November 1984 general conference. "Such service must be free of selfish ambition. It must be motivated only by the pure love of Christ."
