I hope you read Part 1, it has a little to do with this post.
Mosiah 4:21: And now, if God, who has created you, on whom you are dependent for your lives and for all that ye have and are, doth grant unto you whatsoever ye ask that is right, in faith, believing that ye shall receive, O then, how ye ought to impart of the substance that ye have one to another.
The Lord has blessed us, has blessed me, with so very much. Sometimes it’s embarrassing to think about how much I have, and how much I have failed to give to others.
After reading Brook’s speech, I can understand so much better why, for his birthday, our wonderful prophet President Monson did not ask for presents, but instead asked each of us to serve others. President Monson was giving us the gift of giving. I hope with these last couple posts, I have touched at least one person’s heart so that I can be giving the gift of giving this Christmas season. Along with that, I am going to try my hardest to not be a hypocrite. I realize that writing all about this is one thing, taking action is another.
“Let it be a time of forgetting self, and finding time for others.”
-President Thomas S. Monson
