Brothers and sisters, oftentimes we are tempted to compromise with circumstances of the moment, but we must exercise care and live the principles of righteous living at all times so we will know what to do when called upon to make a decision of far greater importance. We must always be examples to the world as members of the Lord's kingdom and keep the laws of the land and the laws of God. — Adney Y. Komatsu, "Looking to the Savior," "Ensign," May 1987, p. 79

The fact that people are physically nearby, regardless of the setting, does not always equate to feelings of acceptance, understanding, inclusion, and fellowship. In too many cases, the reverse may be true. Feelings of acceptance and inclusion come when someone invites us into their circle of friendship and activity. Far beyond fun and games, activities represent at least one nonthreatening way to accept, include, understand, and fellowship others. Perceived in this manner, activities become another vehicle to show charity, love, kindness, forgiveness, service, and to include and not exclude. Amulek said, 'If ye do not remember to be charitable, ye are as dross, which the refiners do cast out, (it being of no worth). (Alma 34:29.) - Adney Y. Komatsu, "Please Hear the Call!" Ensign (CR), May 1992, p. 29

In the Church we have many opportunities to perform charitable acts. Some of the greatest acts of charity begin with an outstretched hand of friendship. - Adney Y. Komatsu, "The Light of the Gospel," Ensign (CR) October 1981
