Worth of Souls is Great...

Doctrine and Covenants 18:10

 Remember the worth of souls is great 
in the sight of God;

Matthew 7:1

Judge not, that ye be not judged.

Psalms 72:14

 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: 
and precious shall their blood be in his sight.

John 13:34-35

A new commandment I give unto you, 
That ye love one another; as I have loved you, 
that ye also love one another.
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, 
if ye have love one to another.

 D&C 88:124–25

the Lord has counseled in latter days that we 
“cease to find fault one with another” 
 “above all things, 
clothe [ourselves] with the bond of 
as with a mantle, 
which is the bond of perfectness and peace.” 


Then are we not commanded to cultivate 

genuine fellowship

and even a kinship 

with every human being on earth? 

Whom would you bar from your circle? 
We might deny ourselves a nearness to our Savior 
because of our prejudices of 
neighborhood or possessions or race—

attitudes that Christ would surely condemn. 

Love has no boundary,
 no limitation of good will.

“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, 
and with all thy soul, 
and with all thy mind.
“This is the first and great commandment.
“And the second is like unto it, 
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
On these two commandments 
hang all the law and the prophets.”

Doctrine and Covenants 18:10

the worth of souls 
is great 
in the sight of God;

There is no room
for the disciples of Christ
to pass judgement or
any soul,
black, white, yellow, red,
man, women,
gay, straight,
fat, thin,
beautiful, plain,
or any individual different than
your self
on this earth.

"Love one another; 

as I have loved you."

Doctrine and Covenants 121:45

Let thy bowels also be full of charity towards all men, and to the household of faith, and let virtue garnish thy thoughts unceasingly; then shall thy confidence wax strong in the presence of God; and the doctrine of the priesthood shall distil upon thy soul as the dews from heaven.

Jacob 3:2

O all ye that are pure in heart, 
lift up your heads and receive the pleasing word of God, 
and feast upon his love; 
for ye may, if your minds are firm, forever.

I must try harder to be like my Father....

                                                        Every accomplishment starts 
                                                          with the decision to try.

  • Thomas S. Monson
  • President of the Church
  • of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
“Our Father’s commitment to us, His children, is unwavering,” 
President Thomas S. Monson says.
 “Indeed He softens the winters of our lives, 
but He also brightens our summers. 
Whether it is the best of times or the worst, 
He is with us. 
He has promised us that this will never change.”
President Monson continues, 
“But we are less faithful than He is. 
By nature we are vain, frail, and foolish. 
We sometimes neglect God. 
Sometimes we fail to keep the commandments 
that He gives us 
to make us happy. 
Sometimes we fail to commune with Him in prayer. 
Sometimes we forget to succor the 
poor and the downtrodden who are also His children. 
And our forgetfulness is very much to our detriment.”

Heavenly Father Is Faithful to Us

Though His children may sometimes forget Him, 
President Monson says, Heavenly Father 
never forgets His children. 
President Monson urges all people to continue to 
look to our constant God 
for guidance in all conditions.
