30 And thus, in their prosperous circumstances, they did not send away any who were naked, or that were hungry, or that were athirst, or that were sick, or that had not been nourished; and they did not set their hearts upon riches; therefore they were liberal to all, both old and young, both bond and free, both male and female, whether out of the church or in the church, having no respect to persons as to those who stood in need.
As shown in the passage above, disciples of Jesus Christ follow His example of caring for those who are in need. True disciples of Christ are “liberal to all,” so that they “do not send any away” who are in need, and they have “no respect to persons as to those who stood in need.”
I don’t know whether I will encounter a person today who is physically hungry, spiritually hungry, or who has other unmet needs. I will commit, however, to follow the Savior’s example by noticing their needs, having compassion on them, and providing for their needs. I will remember that where much is given much is required (D&C 82:3, Luke 12:48), and I will choose to use the blessings I have been given to bless the lives of those in need.
