Introduce the Principle
Jesus Christ was our perfect example of how to love and treat others. Charity is “the pure love of Christ” (see Moroni 7:45–48). It is the highest, noblest, and strongest kind of love and the most lasting and joyous to the soul.
Charity is a gift from God and we cannot develop it without the Lord’s help. Mormon said that we should “pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that [we] may be filled with this love” (Moroni 7:48).
As you pray, keep the commandments, and study the life of the Savior, your love for all people will increase, especially those among whom you serve.
- Read Moroni 7:45. What are the characteristics of charity? How can you seek to develop this kind of love? How will this bless the lives of those you serve?
- Brainstorm and/or role-play a variety of ways you can reach out and bless individual young women.
