The most viable way that members of The Church of Jesus Christ can effectively bless the lives of all humanity is by preaching the gospel, not only in word, but also in deed. Some may feel that the responsibility of preaching the gospel rests only with full-time proselyting missionaries, but the truth is that every Latter-day Saint has a significant part to play, and can indeed be a blessing to all of humanity through the giving of the time, talents, and abilities of which they have been blessed.
Joseph Smith, the first prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is quoted as having said, “A man who is full of the love of God is not content with blessing his family only, but thinks about all of the people in the world, anxious to bless the whole human race.” (Joseph Smith, History of the Church, Vol. 4, pg. 227.) The prophet also taught, “After all that has been said, our greatest and most important duty is to preach the gospel.” (Joseph Smith, TPJS, pg. 113.)
