A thought from the scriptures

To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. — Rev. 3:21

"In this life, certain actions can be perfected," said Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve during the October 1995 general conference. "A baseball pitcher can throw a no-hit, no-run ball game. A surgeon can perform an operation without an error. A musician can render a selection without a mistake. One can likewise achieve perfection in being punctual, paying tithing, keeping the Word of Wisdom, and so on. The enormous effort required to attain such self-mastery is rewarded with a deep sense of satisfaction. More importantly, spiritual attainments in mortality accompany us into eternity. . . .

"Mortal perfection can be achieved as we try to perform every duty, keep every law, and strive to be as perfect in our sphere as our Heavenly Father is in His. If we do the best we can, the Lord will bless us according to our deeds and the desires of our hearts."
