Which of the following quotes describes
your relationship with God?

"The things of God are of deep import; and time, and experience, and careful and ponderous and solemn thoughts can only find them out. Thy mind, O man! if thou wilt lead a soul unto salvation, must stretch as high as the utmost heavens, and search into and contemplate the darkest abyss, and the broad expanse of eternity--thou must commune with God. How much more dignified and noble are the thoughts of God, than the vain imaginations of the human heart!"

Joseph Smith
Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p.137

"O God, put away justice and truth for we cannot understand them and do not want them. Eternity would bore us dreadfully. Leave Thy heavens and come down to our earth of waterclocks and hedges. Become our uncle. Look after Baby, amuse Grandfather, escort Madam to the Opera, help Willy with his home-work, introduce Muriel to a handsome naval officer. Be interesting and weak like us, and we will love you as we love ourselves."

W. H. Auden

For the Time Being


"What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: Tis dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods."

Thomas Pain
The American Crises

Let us not be content with mediocrity in your relationship with God, especially in scripture study, prayer, fasting, and temple worship. Let these be a springboard in our coming to know Him.
