Know How to Work

   Posted by: admin   in Gospel Gems

“How I admire men, women, and children who know how to work! How the Lord loves the laborer! He said, ‘In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread’ (Genesis 3:19), and ‘The laborer is worthy of his hire’ (D&C 84:79). He also gave a promise: ‘Thrust in your sickle with all your soul, and your sins are forgiven you’ (D&C 31:5). Those who are unafraid to roll up their sleeves and lose themselves in the pursuit of worthwhile goals are a blessing to their families, communities, nations, and to the Church.”
