The Worth of Souls

   Posted by: admin

“We sometimes confuse sin with sinner, and we condemn too quickly and with too little compassion. We know from modern revelation that ‘the worth of souls is great in the sight of God.’ We cannot gauge the worth of another soul any more than we can measure the span of the universe.”

Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “You Are My Hands”, Ensign, May. 2010, 69

Moroni 10:32-33 – Grace

   Posted by: admin

32 Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.
33 And again, if ye by the grace of God are perfect in Christ, and deny not his power, then are ye sanctified in Christ by the grace of God, through the shedding of the blood of Christ, which is in the covenant of the Father unto the remission of your sins, that ye become holy, without spot.

Love One Another

   Posted by: admin

“The Savior said:” ‘A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another. . . .” ‘By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another’ (John 13:34–35).”Mother Teresa, a Catholic nun who worked among the poor in India most of her life, spoke this truth: ‘If you judge people, you have no time to love them.’ ”

God’s Love despite Our Disobedience

   Posted by: admin

“If only we will listen, we can know of God’s love and feel it, even when we are disobedient. A woman recently returned to Church activity gave this description in a sacrament meeting talk: ‘He has always been there for me, even when I rejected Him. He has always guided me and comforted me with His tender mercies all around me, but I [was] too angry to see and accept incidents and feelings as such.’ ”

Anger and Wrath an Evidence of God’s Love

   Posted by: admin

“God’s love is so perfect that He lovingly requires us to obey His commandments because He knows that only through obedience to His laws can we become perfect, as He is. For this reason, God’s anger and His wrath are not a contradiction of His love but an evidence of His love. Every parent knows that you can love a child totally and completely while still being creatively angry and disappointed at that child’s self-defeating behavior.”

Dallin H. Oaks, “Love and Law”, Ensign, Nov. 2009, 27
