As is often the case, I’m late in posting things, but as they say, better late than never.
Our Ward Conference was last Fall (September I think) and I made note of a couple good quotes that I figured I’d share.
The primary kids sang “I Know That My Savior Loves Me” and one of the lines is:
I did not touch Him or sit on His knee,
Yet, Jesus is real to me.
What a beautiful thing to have the kids sing. I’m sure very few of them grasp the seriousness and beauty of what they are saying, but I still love the fact that my kids sing it. Hopefully I can help Jesus become even more real to them.
Someone shared a phrase that President Monson has shared many times:
You can’t be right by doing wrong and you can’t be wrong by doing right
It is a pretty simple phrase, but I’d have a pretty hard time understanding how anyone could disagree with it
Someone shared the quote “Don’t let the things that matter most suffer because of the things that matter least.” I liked the sound of it, and looked online for who said it. It was actually a German writer and scholar named Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (28 August 1749 – 22 March 1832) who said:
Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least
This kind of goes along with my post on using our time wisely from a couple of weeks ago. We do need to focus on what matters most!
