We had an amazing lesson in Relief Society today. It was based on the talk given by Elder Dallan H. Oaks in April General Conference 2009, titled Unselfish Service. He said: Our Savior teaches us to follow Him by making the sacrifices necessary to lose ourselves in unselfish service to others. In Matthew 16:24-25 Jesus said to his disciples: "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it”. What an amazing truth this is! It is in our service to our families, our neighbors, members in the community and strangers that we find ourselves. I am constantly amazed by the service I witness from the ladies in our ward. They seem never to be weary of well-doing. But at the same time, I am not surprised by their service. They truly embrace the doctrine of our Savior. When He says, "Come follow me," they heed the call and follow His example in the gentle and tender mercies that He shows each of us. The Savior not only fed 5,000 that had tarried with Him to hear His words, but he healed the sick, one at a time. He knows each of His sheep by name, and that includes me! How grateful I am for that knowledge.
