I’ve always respected and looked up to Elder Neal A. Maxwell for how he says things in a humble yet powerful way. His quiet, careful speech, his intelligence, his love for righteousness and for the Lord is all something to take notice of and review from time to time. I testify that he was a man called of God.
The true Christian is a communicator.
-All These Things Shall Give Thee Experience
Truly we work and live on a streetful of splendid people, whom we are to love and serve even if they are uninterested in us!
No love is ever wasted. Its worth does not lie in reciprocity.
Occasionally some individuals let the seeming ordinariness of life dampen their spirits. Though actually coping and growning, others lack the quiet, inner-soul satisfaction that can steady them, and are experiencing instead, a lingering sense that there is something more important they should be doing . . .as if what is quietly achieved in righteous individual living or in parenthood are not sufficiently spectacular.
God’s extraordinary work is most often done by ordinary people in the seeming obscurity of a home and family.
Those of little faith frequently mistake local cloud cover for general darkness.
Thus worshiping, serving, studying, praying, each in its own way squeezes selfishness out of us; pushes aside our preoccupations with the things of the world.
Many of our daily choices are not intrinsically hard, but we make them that way. Some choices are matters of preference, not principle. We have a way, at times, of exhausting ourselves and the supply of goodwill while struggling over what are preferences—not principles!
Wisdom and Order
If, in the end, you have not chosen Jesus Christ it will not matter what you have chosen.
