At the beginning of his talk, Elder Christofferson pointed out that the Savior literally has never done a single selfish thing. When He volunteered to be our Savior He wasn’t secretly hoping for applause or praise– He did it only with the desire to serve His Father and His brothers and sisters.
Almost as an aside, Elder Christofferson mentioned something that I think is so, so important. He said that the more we rely on God’s love the less we will need other people’s approval. Think of that! How would your life be different if it truly only mattered to you what God thought of you?
Elder Christofferson made a powerful point: just because God’s LOVE is unconditional doesn’t mean His BLESSINGS are too. God has created laws that we have to keep if we want to be worthy of His blessings! So His love is always given freely, but His blessings often come with requirements.
