My Song in the Night

      In Relief Society today we had an absolutely fantastic lesson about service. The entire time, I could not help but think of this wonderful music video from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, as well as Elder M. Russel Ballard's talk entitled Be Anxiously Engaged. He said, "The Savior taught that the first and great commandment is:

"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. . .

"And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

"On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets" (Matthew 22:37, 39-40).

The Savior's words are simple, yet their meaning is profound and deeply significant. We are to love God and to love and care for our neighbors as ourselves. Imagine what good we can do in the world if we all join together, united as followers of Christ, anxiously and busily responding to the needs of others and serving those around us - our families, our friends, our neighbors, our fellow citizens."
