"Material things do not of themselves produce happiness and satisfaction and the joy of attainment on earth. Nor do they lead us to exaltation. It is nobility of character, that fabric of inner strength and conviction woven from countless righteous decisions, that gives life its direction. A consistent, righteous life produces an inner power and strength that can be permanently resistant to the eroding influence of sin and transgression. Your faith in Jesus Christ and obedience to His commandments will strengthen your character. Your character is a measure of what you are becoming. It is the evidence of how well you are using your time on earth in this period of mortal probation." By Elder Richard G Scott in his talk titled "The Transforming Power of Faith and Character.
It's true, we can find fun and excitement through material things but lasting joy comes only in and through Jesus Christ and our OBEDIENCE to his Law's and commandments. As we continue to develop our faith in Christ and are obedient to his commandments it will strengthen our Character and will mold us to what Heavenly Father would want us to be. We all want exaltation! the best way we can obtain it is through our obedience to Jesus Christ....if you havent noticed i'm hinting at something...(obedience is key to exaltation) GOD BLESS YOU ALL! I love this work and the plan that God provided for us.
