A thought from the scriptures

Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: - Isa. 29:13

"Why do we suppose that He (God) asks us to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness?" asked Elder Mark E. Petersen of the Council of the Twelve at the April 1982 general conference. "Would He do this if He did not mean it?

It is actually an effort to live on both sides of the line."We need not suppose that we can serve two masters. If we try, we may be sure of one thing - that our master will not be the Christ, for He will not accept us on those terms."
