A thought from the scriptures

And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service or your God. — Mosiah 2:17

"We need to remember the purpose of our service one to another. . . . We serve God and our fellowmen in order to become the kind of children who can return to live with our heavenly parents," said Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve during the October 2002 general conference.
