Marvin J. Ashton’s words on charity inspire me every day to be a better person. He served as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. His words inspire me to be kinder to others. To give others the benefit of the doubt. To seek the good in others. To turn my cheek and to truly forgive those who have caused me pain. To be more optimistic. To expect the best of others and to help them be the best they can be.
Moroni 7:47 tells us that charity is “the pure love of Christ.” Jesus Christ is the perfect example of charity. He always went about showing compassion, teaching the gospel, and serving others. Let us all strive to be like Him.
