Today's thought

"The formula for successful relationships with others boils down to that divine code known as the Golden Rule. [Matthew 7:12] It was the Master who said: 'And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant' (Matthew 20:27). Unselfish, willing service to others was the keynote of His relationship with men. 'For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many' (Mark 10:45). To serve others willingly and unselfishly should be one of our greatest virtues. It is not even a matter of choice. It is an obligation, a sacred command" (The Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, p. 447).
