Comments Off on True Success in This Life Comes in Consecrating Our Lives to God’s Purpose

To consecrate is to set apart or dedicate something as sacred, devoted to holy purposes. True success in this life comes in consecrating our lives—that is, our time and choices—to God’s purposes (see John 17:1, 4; D&C 19:19). In so doing, we permit Him to raise us to our highest destiny.

Comments Off on Choosing

If you have not chosen the Kingdom of God first, it will in the end make no difference what you have chosen instead.

Comments Off on One life is all we have, and we live it as we believe in living it, and then it’s gone

Every man gives his life for what he believes; every woman gives her life for what she believes. Sometimes people believe in little or nothing, [and yet] they give up their lives to that little or nothing. One life is all we have, and we live it as we believe in living it, and then it’s gone. But to surrender what you are, and live without belief—that’s more terrible than dying—more terrible than dying young”
