- We do not honor the priesthood of God if we are not kind to others.
He says that the scriptures are full of examples of people living these principles.
- The scriptures teach us that the righteous exercise of the priesthood is dependent upon our living the principles of kindness, charity, and love.
President Monson encourages us to commit ourselves to living a life that is full of kindness towards our fellow man. As we do, we will honor the sacred callings we have been given as priesthood holders.
- Let us examine our lives and determine to follow the Savior’s example by being kind, loving, and charitable. And as we do so, we will be in a better position to call down the powers of heaven for ourselves, for our families, and for our fellow travelers in this sometimes difficult journey back to our heavenly home.
President Monson speaks so plainly about a topic that is so simple, yet sometimes overlooked in our everyday lives. We need to be kind to one another. The Savior was the ultimate example of compassion and kindness and we become more like Him when we are kind to our fellow man. We need to study the scriptures for examples of charity and kindness and emulate those that have been great examples of these traits. As we do, we will become more Christlike, learning to be more charitable and kind to others.
