Selflessness


“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”

“To be a good neighbor is to wonder how your words and actions will impact others rather than to wonder how you will be impacted. This is not to say that we should abandon personal safety or exhaust ourselves in unhealthy ways. Instead, we should build the faith to understand that when we are unselfish, our needs will also be taken care of.”

The Power of One: Selfless Service

To be like the Savior is to be whole, which implies that we are engaged in acts of selfless service. Selfless service requires personal action, a desire to pick up our beds and walk. It is easy to give away excess money, used equipment, and used clothing. It is more difficult to give of our time, to give of our personal presence to help others.

Selflessness—Selfishness

Almost all of the problems in our lives, our families, and our communities could be solved if we would simply replace our selfishness with selflessness. With selflessness we demonstrate our true relationship and intimacy with the Savior. It is the link that binds together the family of God.
