Service is about love

Service is such a simple thing; each one of us can serve others.  King Benjamin from the Book of Mormon taught "when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God." Mosiah 2:17

I enjoy serving others there is so much joy that comes through service. As we reach out to another selflessly we truly learn to love them. I'm sure our Heavenly Father smiles when we reach out to help each other.

“Help others in their race of life. Remember that when you help another up a mountain, you are a little nearer the top yourself.”
Thomas S. Monson

I know that as we each take a little time so serve eachother we will be happier. We will be able to find stength as we forget about ourselves and look to those in need.

“It is not easy to give up our personal priorities and desires. . . . [But] ‘he who lives only unto himself withers and dies, while he who forgets himself in the service of others grows and blossoms in this life and in eternity’ (Gordon B. Hinckley, Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley [1997], 588).”
Dallin H. Oaks
