Thursday Thoughts: Service, Lesson from 3/13/11


“I am among you as he that serveth” (Luke 22:27)

How We Can Serve

We must seek inspiration and be tuned in to the Spirit. We can ask in our prayers to have opportunities to serve. We should develop our talents so that we are able to serve in our own way, both large acts as well as small acts of service.

Why the Savior Wants Us to Serve Others

President Spencer W. Kimball said, “God does notice us, and he watches over us. But it is usually through another person that he meets our needs.”

Mosiah 2: 17-18 says:

“When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of  your God…

“And if I, whom ye call your king, do labor to serve you, then ought not ye to labor to serve one another?”

We Receive Blessings through Service

President Spencer W. Kimball said, “We become more substantive as we serve others–indeed, it is easier to ‘find’ ourselves because there is so much more of us to find!”

We love those we serve. We get to know those we serve better.

Opportunities to serve abound. Jesus Christ is the perfect example of service.

“When we willingly serve others in the spirit of love, we become more like Christ,” (Gospel Principles, p. 166)
