Giving

This beautiful 3-minute video from Thailand should be viewed while recalling the words of King Benjamin, who taught that we are all beggars before God. (Mosiah 4:19 in the Book of Mormon, plus see the whole passage around that verse on the issue of how we treat those who ask for our help). Sometimes glorious and noble souls are disguised by the illusion of poverty. How sad that we don't see who they are and miss the opportunity to share with them and be blessed through connecting even briefly with them.


And yes, people are noting that this simple production beats the socks off the films Hollywood produces these days.

Look past the poverty of others and see the potential, then help in appropriate ways.

Thank you. In times of trouble I need something like this small video to remind me of what is really important.
