Service to Others

Serve others in your Church assignments and in your home, school, and community. Seek daily the guidance of the Holy Ghost to know whom to serve and how to help meet their needs.

King Benjamin taught, “When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God” (Mosiah 2:17). There are many ways to serve others, but sincerity and love are the key. Here are some other tips and suggestions on how to serve:

  1. Don’t forget that service to your family comes first.

  2. Make your service fit individual needs. Think about what someone might like, want, or need.

  3. Keep service activities simple, and include others in planning and carrying them out.

  4. A smile, a cheerful attitude, a listening ear, sincere praise, and quiet acts of kindness are important forms of service.

  5. Remember and apply the counsel given in Mosiah 4:21. Share generously with others.
