Inspirational Thought

"My brothers and sisters, the first great commandment of all eternity is to love God with all of our heart, might, mind, and strength--that's the first great commandment.  But the first great truth of all eternity is that God loves us with all of His heart, might, mind, and strength.  That love is the foundation stone of eternity, and it should be the foundation stone of our daily life.  Indeed it is only with that reassurance burning in our soul that we can have the confidence to keep trying to improve, keep seeking forgiveness for our sins, and keep extending that grace to our neighbor."

—Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, Tomorrow the Lord Will Do Wonders among You,
LDS General Conference (Apr. 2016)
