YouTube Mormon Messages: Elder Dallin H. Oaks Speaks Of The Value Of Unselfish Service

Uploaded onto Mormon Messages on February 22nd, 2011 is a message from Elder Dallin H. Oaks about the value of rendering unselfish service. While child-rearing is an example of one of the most difficult and challenging long term examples of unselfish service, unselfish service can also be manifested in simple and random acts of kindness as well. Unselfish service can take precedence over all else; Elder Oaks quotes President Thomas S. Monson as saying "Perhaps when we [face] our Maker, we will not be asked, ‘How many positions did you hold?’ but rather, ‘How many people did you help?’"

You can read the full transcript of Elder Oaks' address either on the April 2009 General Conference archives or in the May 2009 Ensign. Also visit for more information about how LDS people can serve.
