Wednesday Words

“A Latter-day Saint is quite an ordinary individual. We are now everywhere in the world, 14 million of us. This is only the beginning. We are taught to be in the world but not of the world.17 Therefore, we live ordinary lives in ordinary families mixed in with the general population.

“We are taught not to lie or steal or cheat.18 We do not use profanity. We are positive and happy and not afraid of life.

“We are “willing to mourn with those that mourn … and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places.”19

“If someone is looking for a church that requires very little, this is not the one. It is not easy to be a Latter-day Saint, but in the long run it is the only true course.

“Regardless of opposition or “wars, rumors of wars, and earthquakes in divers places,”20 no power or influence can stop this work.”
