Understanding the Scriptures
Doctrine and Covenants 12:8—“Full of Love”
The Prophet Joseph Smith taught: “Love is one of the chief characteristics of Deity, and ought to be manifested by those who aspire to be the sons of God. A man filled with the love of God, is not content with blessing his family alone, but ranges through the whole world, anxious to bless the whole human race” (History of the Church,4:227).
