Succor the Weak
Doctrine & Covenants 81-83 | July 19-25
Frederick G. Williams was called as a counselor in the First Presidency. In section 81, some of the duties of the First Presidency are given, including the call to “succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees.” The Lord was asking him, and us, to serve those who need help.
In sections 82 and 83, the Lord specifically asks us to care for the poor, the widows, and orphans, “every man seeking the interest of his neighbor, and doing all things with an eye single to the glory of God.” (D&C 82:19)
Loving God and our neighbors are the two greatest commandments. By keeping these commandments, we are promised great blessings.
