Expanding Our Circle of Love…


“We must strive to manifest the love of Christ, who always sought to
please His Father by doing His will. . . . We must make every effort to
follow His supreme example–to demonstrate such love through our
thoughts, our speech, our actions–in all the things we do and
are. We must not allow pride or vanity, selfishness or personal agendas to
displace our reaching out to others in love. Quite simply and profoundly,
we must first allow ourselves to be encircled by God’s love. We do this
best by embracing the Savior’s eternal Atonement. Then we can expand
that circle to include our family and all others. Such a circle is indeed
heaven.”

Topics: Jesus Christ, love, sharing, example
