I was originally going to talk on a different subject, but I have felt it important to change that.

I feel as if we, as a general society, feel like we have become complacent in our progression. If we are leisurely trying to progress in our progression toward the Celestial Kingdom, we can only get so far, for as if we were to quicken our pace, and strive to treat it as a job, and work all our days to get where we want to be, we will achieve our goal and then be able to go beyond that point. For if a farmer were to plant a seed and expect the rain to come down and provide it with the needed water. It would eventually sprout and grow, but if that farmer were to work all his days nourishing and strengthening that seed, how much more fruit would that one seed be able to produce? If we are able to labor with all our might, we can receive a greater blessing then if we sit back and say the seed is planted.

I would ask how much work are you able to put into your Eternal Salvation?

I know that where ever you have found that your at, Jesus Christ and His Atonement can help you become better. I would exhort you to ask what you can do to become better in prayer, and follow the council given.

I hope you all have a great week to come.

Elder Warkentin
