the great commandment

In October 2007, Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin gave a talk entitled "The Great Commandment".

I don't remember much about that talk. But the talked changed my life.
Watch the video of it. You'll see what I mean.

Joseph B. Wirthlin stood shaking at the pulpit delivering the words of God. At times it looked as though his frail body was going to collapse right there on live tv.

Nearing the end of his talk he grew increasingly weak. Elder Russell M. Nelson, stood behind him and held him up for the entire rest of his talk. Talk about charity- the pure love of Christ. It brings tears to my eyes.

The words I remember most from that talk was the quivering "thank you" Elder Wirthlin said to his brother in service, his brother in Christ after he successfully finished his talk.

Watch it. It will send warm chills up your spine.

May we ALL have a moment of selfless service in the upcoming day, week, month.
