We need to ask ourselves difficult questions – like “what do i need to change?” We must be willing to act when we receive an answer.
What lack I yet?
- Story of the mother who asked = and was told “stop complaining”.
- young man – asked and was told “clean up your language”
- young women – stop interrupting people when they’re speaking
- young missionary – needed to keep the sabbath day holy (stop studying, working on the sabbath).
The holy ghost gives us custom advice. Not everything at once, but one at a time. Line upon line.
The atoning sacrifice of our saviour is what makes santification possible. The atonement is for sinners, but also saints – worthy young men and women who are worthy.
Sometimes we need to ask what we’re doing right – so that we can receive encouragement.
It’s our duty to be better today than yesterday, and tomorrow than today.
HOMEWORK: Ask tonight what I can improve. May be to be more honest in business dealings, or pay a greater fast offering, or go to the Temple more.
