Oh my! December is half way over. I feel like I go to sleep and wake up and three days have passed, but I've only slept 8 hours.
Here are some thoughts on what charity is:
But charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him. (Moroni 7:47)
Charity is a work of the heart. It is not merely affection, but the highest and strongest kind of love. It is the pure love of Christ. If we love the Lord with all our heart, it becomes easier to love others. And as we do, we become more like Him. (Ensign, July 1999, 55)
Charity can be the outward expression of faith and hope. (Joseph B. Wirthlin, “Cultivating Divine Attributes,” Ensign, Nov 1998, 25)
