Jeffrey R. Holland gave a talk titled “Because of Your Faith” at the Saturday morning session of the October General Conference. Here are a couple of quotes from that talk.
“The personal value, the sacred splendor of every one of you, is the very reason there is a plan for salvation and exaltation.”
“My thanks to all you wonderful members of the Church—and legions of good people not of our faith—for proving every day of your life that the pure love of Christ ‘never faileth.'”
I enjoyed the heart-felt gratitude that Elder Holland expressed in this talk. I especially enjoyed hearing him tell about how his parents sacrificed their wants so that he would be able to come home from his mission and attend school. That is the kind of parent and the kind of person I want to be. Someone who is always looking for ways to help others, even without recognition, and even if it means sacrificing something I may want at the moment.
I hope we can all take to heart his message and continue to show that there is charity, the true love of Christ, in all of us.
