I’m teaching Relief Society today at church, so I got up early to review and finish preparing. I get to “teach” or lead a discussion around a talk called, You Are My Hands, that Elder Uchtdorf gave in general conference.
This quote really stands out for me:
“We cannot gauge the worth of another soul any more than we can measure the span of the universe”
And this little analogy, too:
One woman who had been through years of trial and sorrow said through her tears, “I have come to realize that I am like an old 20-dollar bill–crumpled, torn, dirty, abused, and scarred. But I am still a 20-dollar bill. I am worth something. Even though I may not look like much and even though I have been battered and used, I am still worth the full 20 dollars.”
Near the end of his talk, Elder Uchtdorf poses this question: Christ knows how to minister to others perfectly. When the Savior stretches out His hands, those He touches are uplifted and become greater, stronger, and better people as a result. If we are His hands, should we not do the same?
have a good Sunday.
