“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
Before Jesus and his disciples ate the Passover supper, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples. Jesus taught them that He is their example, and that they should do the things He did. He taught them about how important it is to love and show love. He commanded them to love one another, just as He had loved them.
Jesus was not only talking to His twelve disciples, He was teaching all those who follow Him. We should try to show love to one another, keep the commandments to show love for Jesus Christ, and remember the love Jesus has for us and the sacrifice he made for us. The sacrament is an opportunity to remember Jesus Christ each week and renew our promise to always remember Him.
“In today’s world, nowhere is that bedrock foundation of love needed more than in the home. And nowhere should the world find a better example of that foundation than in the homes of Latter-day Saints who have made love the heart of their family life. … Love is the very essence of the gospel, the noblest attribute of the human soul.”
Thomas S. Monson
