charity never faileth.

“Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other, when we don’t judge or categorize someone else, when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet. Charity is accepting someone’s differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings; having patience with someone who has let us down; or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn’t handle something the way we might have hoped. Charity is refusing to take advantage of another’s weakness and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us. Charity is expecting the best of each other.”

-Marvin J. Ashton, Ensign 1992

  2. Good point, charity is just not a matter of materialism by giving people things or stuff. It really is about loving the person for who they are and helping them with their all of their needs.
