We went and visited a member of the ward who is doing remodeling in his house to be able to rent out different parts of his house. We visited him, and he was telling us about all his plans for his house, and we realized that there were already several people living in those apartments he was building. We asked him about it, and he told us that he was just letting them live there, because he saw that they were in need. They were not paying anything to live there, but he was lending then the newly remodeled rooms that he had just finished. And not only that, but one of the guys living there (another member) is trying to sell food to get money, and the member that is letting him live in his house is helping him find people to sell to, asking around for people who could buy a lunch from him, and then he takes him in his car to deliver the food! I saw in this members example this true charity. In a world that sometimes seems a little self centered and unkind, it is great to see that there are true disciples of Christ that are lifting up the lives of others! Those who have truly developed charity, who are giving and sacrificing, even when it is not required, to help someone else. To lighten another´s burdens, or to offer another help.
I know that Christ is the true and perfect example of charity. I know that as we follow Him, we will become like Him, and we will be able to help our friends and family, and even strangers just as Christ would.
I hope you all have a great week!
