. . . Succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees. - D&C 81:5
"Time passes. Circumstances change. Conditions vary. Unaltered is the divine command to succor the weak and lift up the hands which hang down and strengthen the feeble knees," Elder Thomas S. Monson, then of the Council of the Twelve, said during the October 1971 general conference."Each of us has the charge to be not a doubter, but a doer; not a leaner, but a lifter. But our complacency tree has many branches, and each spring more buds come into bloom. Often we live side by side but do not communicate heart to heart. There are those within the sphere of our own influence who, with outstretched hands, cry out: `Is there no balm in Gilead . . . ?' (Jer. 8:22.) Each of us must answer.
"May we succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees, thereby inheriting that eternal life promised by the Redeemer."
