A thought for the weekend:
When we teach favourable things (keeping covenants, Faith-Hope-Charity, Love One Another), we do so to help you reach Exaltation. That is why we have lessons at church. We wish to arm you with all the knowledge we can to enable you to make the best decisions.
When we preach against things (covetousness, laziness, other sins), we do so as a warning; these things will keep you from Exaltation. Sin and the consequences thereof are an anchor that weigh you down, weigh you away from your ultimate destiny.
Do you know who you are--who you truly are, who you were born to be, created to be? We're trying to teach you this.
It's *ALL* about the Plan of Salvation and how to reach your greatest destiny.
