So this week in Relief Society we had a wonderful lesson about Charity..

Charity is something that we talk a lot about as missionaries. It is something that is discussed quite in depth in the scriptures. Charity incompasses so much! There is so much covered within charity, and with it, it changes so much.
1 Corinthians 13 talks ALL about charity! And I LOVE IT!!! I just wanted to share what is said in the first three verse:
"1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing."
Charity is so important in everything we do. Charity is everything. It truly is the pure love that is found in our Saviour Jesus Christ. 

Why does Charity have the power that it does?

This is something that I have been thinking a lot about.... which is why I started this post on Tuesday... and its now Saturday.... haha :) ya..... 
Anyways, charity has the power it does because of the love that is described in John 3:16, 
"16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

I think this really describes the power of charity. It is the pure love, not simply from our Saviour, but also our Heavenly Father. They have such incredible love for each of us and I know that love is not only real but is powerful.
