“Cleave unto Charity”

As Mormon described it, charity refers to a Christlike motive behind acts of kindness. In the following accounts, members share experiences that help us learn how to acquire charity.

The world uses the word charity to mean material aid given to those in need. Latter-day Saints focus on the additional meaning of “the highest, noblest, strongest kind of love, not merely affection; the pure love of Christ” (“Charity,” Bible Dictionary, 632). That kind of charity often changes hearts and lives, as members recall here.
