"Life gives to all the choice. You can satisfy yourself with mediocrity if you wish. You can be common, ordinary, dull, colorless, or you can channel your life so that it will be clean, vibrant, useful, progressive, colorful, and rich."
~Spencer W. Kimball
Really great quote by a great man. It motivates me to want to be better.
“Charity is having patience with someone who has let us down. It is resisting the impulse to become offended easily. It is accepting weaknesses and shortcomings. It is accepting people as they truly are. It is looking beyond physical appearances to attributes that will not dim through time. It is resisting the impulse to categorize others.”
~President Thomas S. Monson
*Charity is such a beautiful subject, it is "the true love of Christ". When we are trying to have more charity in our lives, windows open, we see things through God's eyes. The world is a more beautiful place to be.
I have had experiences where others have "let me down" as I know everyone else has too, it is part of our earthly experience. I am so thankful, not for the being let down part, : ) But, for this opportunity to grow and learn and try to acquire the talent and gift of Charity.
