For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. - 2 Cor. 5:10
"Our Heavenly Father is looking at us," Elder Marion D. Hanks of the Seventy said at October 1990 general conference. "He loves us and wants us to choose the path that leads to happiness here and eternal life hereafter. In His plan He authorizes us to act for Him, to be instruments of His concern for His children. But He won't force any of us to make choices that lead to happiness. He has given each of us the right and responsibility to make personal choices, individual decisions, and has made us accountable for them. He not only affects our lives, He is affected by our lives, and sometimes He weeps for us." . . . We are here on this earth to learn, after the example of the Father and the Son, to love enough to give - to learn to use our agency unselfishly."
