A thought from the scriptures

Thou shalt not be idle; for he that is idle shall not eat the bread nor wear the garments of the laborer. - D&C 42:42

"Too many people in our country today are developing the attitude that government is obligated to care and provide for them," Elder M. Russell Ballard, then of the Presidency of the Seventy, said in the April 1981 general conference. "In many ways, government has fostered this attitude, but the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints know better. . . ."The love of work is an attitude that members of the Church must develop. In some ways, we have gone through a period of great prosperity which may, when history is written, prove to be as devastating as the Great Depression in its effect upon the attitudes of the people. . . .

"The love of work needs to be reenthroned in our lives. Every family should have a plan for work that touches the lives of each family member so that this eternal principle will be ingrained in their lives."
