The Joy In Serving

The title of this video from Mormon Messages is called, Our Hands His Hands, Our Heart His Heart. From A talk called "You are my hands"  in the May 2010 Ensign by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Please enjoy this amazing video. Oft times we like to do things by ourselves, and refuse help from others when we really need it. We don't want to be thought of as a "charity" case. Sometimes it is the pride in us that doesn't allow us to receive help from others. Several times we refuse help from the Lord. Believing that we are good enough to do things without His help. Sometimes there are those reaching out for help and we think that others will be there to help them. We should be seeking opportunities to serve others, but we should also have humility to ask for help when it is needed. 

"...As we emulate His perfect example, our hands can become His hands; our eyes, His eyes; our heart, His heart.... As we extend our hands and hearts toward others in Christlike love, something wonderful happens to us. Our own spirits become healed, more refined, and stronger. We become happier, more peaceful, and more receptive to the whisperings of the Holy Spirit." - President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
