And His love for others is what ultimately draws them to Him. These LDS quotes about kindness are excellent reminders that we are here to do the same.

6 General Conference Quotes about Kindness
“Kindness should permeate all of our words and actions at work, at school, at church, and especially in our homes.” – Joseph B. Wirthlin
No matter what, we should always strive to be kind. You never know what another person is going through, and your kindness might just keep them going. We must set an example, especially in our homes. As parents, we are teaching the next generation how to treat people. We must do our best to raise kind kids.
“Why do any of us have to be so mean and unkind to others? Why can’t all of us reach out in friendship to everyone about us?” – Gordon B. Hinckley
Whether we agree or disagree with how someone lives their life, we can always be kind and friendly to others. Your friendship might just be exactly what that person needs at that moment. If someone is being unkind, it’s important that you are not unkind back. The best thing you can do is remain kind and compassionate, and that kindness might be what that person needs to become kinder themself.
“Let us examine our lives and determine to follow the Savior’s example by being kind, loving, and charitable.” – Thomas S. Monson
Christ was kind and loving to everyone, whether they were sinners or saints. He did not treat anyone differently or unkindly. We should strive to do the same. We must reserve our judgment and treat everyone as if they are worthy of Christ’s love because they are. Everyone is equally worthy of God’s love, we are all His children no matter what mistakes we have made in our lives.
“I promise that if you will extend yourself beyond what is easy to do, you will feel so good inside that kindness will start to become a part of your everyday life.” – Mary N. Cook
The easy thing to do isn’t always the right thing to do. We should always try to do what we think Heavenly Father would want us to do. Following His wishes for us will lead to ultimate joy and happiness. Doing the right thing will likely be harder, but the reward will be so much greater than what you would have received simply doing the easy thing.
“As you extend yourself with kindness, care, and compassion, I promise that you will lift up arms that hang down and will heal hearts.” – Gary E. Stevenson
Kindness is a powerful thing. Being kind to others can change the world. If everyone treated others kindly, there would be less violence, less suffering, and less unhappiness everywhere. What a wonderful world it would be.
“Christian service connects all of us in a network of kindness that is strong and beautiful.” – Chieko N. Okazaki
Every Christian knows that the ultimate goal in life is to be as Christ-like as we can. Being like Christ includes serving others, and showing kindness to everyone, no matter what differences you may have. Even people who you may think don’t “deserve” your kindness, are worthy of it. Those are the people who need kindness the most!

For that is right, you see.

But I won’t stop till
I see His Kindness In Me.”
