Today I gave a lesson in Sunday school about the second coming. I decided to focus on the importance of knowing the reality of our Savior and His mission. If we really want to return to God we have to know and become like Him. I realized that two of the things most important to our salvation are trials and service. While Christ lived on the earth He was faced with many trials and His whole life was service to others. We are no different. We are here to be tested and our focus should be service to others.
Someone today posed the question; Have you ever regretted a decision to serve? We often neglect or delay opportunities to serve but I honestly can't think of a time that I was upset that I chose to give service.
Service is the anecdote to selfishness.
I only hope to begin to develop this level of charity.
