We listened to a talk by President Monson the other night and I felt like he was talking directly to me. This part especially got to me.

"I consider charity or "the pure love of Christ" to be the opposite of criticism and judging. In speaking of charity, I do not at this moment have in mind the relief of the suffering through the giving of our substance. Tonight, however, I do have in mind the charity that manifests itself when we are tolerant of others and lenient toward their actions, the kind of charity that forgives, that is patient.

I have in mind the charity that impels us to be sympathetic, compassionate, and merciful, not only in times of sickness and affliction and distress, but also in times of weakness or error on the part of others"

So that is my goal! To be more compassionate, merciful and sympathetic, especially in times of weakness and error form others!

Loved his talk...go here for the full article.
