A thought from the scriptures

Wherefore, we would to God that we could persuade all men not to rebel against God, to provoke him to anger, but that all men would believe in Christ, and view his death, and suffer his cross and bear the shame of the world. . . . - Jacob 1:8

"Is it not time that we begin denying ourselves, as the Savior counseled, and surrender and master ourselves rather than indulge ourselves in a `do my own thing' selfish little world?" said Elder James E. Faust of the Council of the Twelve, addressing April conference in 1991."The question is not so much what we can do, but what God can do through us. . . . Taking up one's cross and following the Savior is always a commitment to service. . . . Most privilege carries with it the responsibility to serve, to give and to bless.

"Meeting that challenge to give, to serve, to bless in faithfulness and devotion is the only way to enjoy the crown of glory spoken of by the original Apostles. It is the way true meaning comes to life. We will be able to receive honors or scorn with equal serenity."
