Developing self

In all our getting and doing, have we taken inventory of how we are doing with our greatest responsibility? Our greatest responsibility in this life is to develop ourselves, academically, physically, socially, and spiritually. We can't help others until we have something to give. We can't be without becoming. This life is our university for eternity. Are we organizing, planning, working, and evaluating our progress in our greatest job here in mortality? And this doesn't end at 18, graduation, mission over with, getting married, after having children, or retirement. Keep learning and developing yourself as long as you live!


Please be humble enough to repent regularly. We all need it often to repent of our pride, things we say, or do, of weaknesses we want to justify or pretend we don't have. We need repentance as long as we live. Thank goodness, despite the terrible price paid, for the soap to clean our souls as they collect spots from the world we live in.
