The idea or imagery of pressing forward suggests, therefore, earnestness and energy and not a passive stroll in the general direction of Home and Him. The imagery also emphasizes a direction—forward—not side trips and detours. Detours don’t have to be bad to have a bad effect—they always cost us time. They may also mean that we were not there to help a fellow traveler who needed us as he stumbled. Pressing forward suggests an enthusiastic, relentless progress along the path, ‘with a steadfastness in Christ’ (2 Nephi 31:20) being part of the imagery.
