Wisdom from George Albert Smith

Just wanted to share some wonderful bits of wisdom from George Albert Smith!!!

"Our religion must find expression in our deeds. It must carry over into the details of daily life. It is important that we live the lives that entitle us to be called Saints, and if you will do that, you will be happy. …I pray that the spirit which will enable us to serve faithfully may be with us, that the desire to do good may overcome the temptations that are placed in our way, and that, wherever we go, others observing our good works may be constrained to glorify our Father who is in heaven (Matthew 5:16) . We need to exercise charity, not only in imparting of our substance to those who are in need, but we need to have charity for the weaknesses and failures and mistakes of our Father’s children.

I haven’t any animosity in my heart toward any living human being. I know some that I wish would behave themselves a little better than they do, but that is their loss, not mine. If I can get my arm around them and help them back on the highway of happiness by teaching them the gospel of Jesus Christ, my happiness will be increased thereby. "

Look and find the things God has blessed you with today!
