My mom sent me this message from President Uchtdorf today. I especially liked her choice of subject line!
Subject: this is what it’s all about!
Message: “Enduring to the end, or remaining faithful to the laws and ordinances of the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout our life, is a fundamental requirement for salvation in the kingdom of God…Therefore, enduring to the end is not just a matter of passively tolerating life’s difficult circumstances or “hanging in there.” Ours is an active religion, helping God’s children along the strait and narrow path to develop their full potential during this life and return to Him one day… Enduring to the end is a process filling every minute of our life, every hour, every day, from sunrise to sunrise. It is accomplished through personal discipline following the commandments of God.”
–Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “Have We Not Reason to Rejoice?”, Ensign, Nov 2007, 18–21
I love my mother, and I love the messages from conference. I especially enjoy President Uchtdorf’s messages: see the latest ones at lds.org’s new conference page.
