Motivational Monday

“In reviewing the Lord’s counsel to us on the importance of preparedness, I am impressed with the plainness of the message. The Savior made it clear that we cannot place sufficient oil in our preparedness lamps by simply avoiding evil. We must also be anxiously engaged in a positive program of preparation. The Lord will not translate one’s good hopes and desires and intentions into works. Each of us must do that for himself.”

Spencer W. Kimball, The Miracle of Forgiveness, Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1969, p. 8

Today, especially, this quote should be very motivating to us all. Buy your oil now, there may not be money to buy it with tomorrow. Sue

That is one of my all time favorite quotes. It just doesn't get more straight forward than that.
