Transcript of Loving Others and Living with Differences

How does it affect you to know that someone cares about you?

... when someone acts in a Christlike way towards you?

... when someone is kind or thoughtful?
Why do we need to love God above all else?

What does it look like to have sincere Christlike love for our brothers and sisters?
How do we express love to those who believe differently?
"The Savior did not limit His warning against contention to those who were not keeping the commandment about baptism. He forbade contention by anyone. Even those who keep the commandments must not stir up the hearts of men to contend with anger. The 'father of contention' is the devil; the Savior is the Prince of Peace... In modern revelation the Lord commanded that the glad tidings of the restored gospel should be declared 'every man to his neighbor, in mildness and in meekness,' 'with all humility,... reviling not against revilers."
Followers of Christ should be examples of civility. We should love all people, be good listeners, and show concern for their sincere beliefs. Though we may disagree, we should not be disagreeable. Our stands and communications on controversial topics should not be contentious. We should be wise in explaining and pursuing our positions and in exercising our influence. In doing so, we ask that others not be offended by our sincere religious beliefs and the free exercise of our religion. We encourage all of us to practice the Savior's Golden Rule: "Whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them." (Matthew 7:12)
Loving Others and Living with Differences
... Elder Oaks

Why do we serve?- Elder Oaks 1984
... most of us probably serve for a combination of reasons, and the combinations may be different from time to time as we grow spiritually. But we should all strive to serve for the reasons that are highest and best.

“Charity is the pure love of Christ.” (Moro. 7:47.) The Book of Mormon teaches us that this virtue is “the greatest of all.” (Moro. 7:46.) The Apostle Paul affirmed and illustrated that truth in his great teaching about the reasons for service:

“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. …
“And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, … and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.” (1 Cor. 13:1–3.)

We know from these inspired words that even the most extreme acts of service—such as giving all of our goods to feed the poor—profit us nothing unless our service is motivated by the pure love of Christ.

Why is it hard to have Christ like love for one another?
