"Hundreds of thousands of faithful members participate in the unselfish we call “temple work,” which has no motive other than love and for our fellowmen, living and dead. The same unselfish is given by legions of officers and teachers in our stakes and wards and branches. All are uncompensated in worldly terms but committed to Christlike to their fellowmen."
The entire organization of the Church is run on service. I always loved that about the Church. There is no monetary gain that can be had from what we do. It is true service.
"A familiar example of losing ourselves in the of others...is the sacrifice parents make for their children. Mothers suffer pain and loss of personal priorities and comforts to bear and rear each child. Fathers adjust their lives and priorities to support a family."
This is one of the very best examples of selfless service that any one could ever find.
"Our willingness to sacrifice and our skills in cooperative efforts come from our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, from the inspired teachings of our leaders, and from the commitments and covenants we knowingly make."
This is a good summary of how we are able to accomplish all the different acts of service that come our way in life.
"A selfish person is more interested in pleasing man—especially himself—than in pleasing God."
And I think this is the best explanation in knowing what would be considered selfless service, and what is selfish. If you are doing it for the praise of man, then it is not selfless. Simple definition.
Anyway. There's some food for thought. A bit of a cop out for today. Sorry. I couldn't think of any stories today. Hopefully tomorrow.
