Beyond Comparison

I love a quote from Sunday afternoon session of October General Conference 2014 from the first speaker who was M Russell. Ballard. His talk was on "Stay in the Boat and Hold On!" This post is based on that talk and I hope you will gain a few things to some things throughout this blog post. 
He mentioned 2 occasions and mentioned President Young reminded us. One of the occasions that he mentioned was "On another occasion, President Young said that he also worried about people losing their way when they were being blessed when life was good: “It is in calm weather, when the old ship of Zion is sailing with a gentle breeze, [and] when all is quiet on deck, that some of the brethren want to go out in the whaling boats to have a swim, and some get drowned, others drifted away, and others again get back to the ship. Let us stick to the old ship and she will carry us [safely] into the harbor; you need not be concerned."

He asked us "Given the challenges we all face today, how do we stay on the Old Ship Zion?" He explained of how we can.

This is what he mentioned "Here is how. We need to experience a continuing conversion by increasing our faith in Jesus Christ and our faithfulness to His gospel throughout our lives not just once but regularly. Alma asked, “And now behold, I say unto you, my brethren [and sisters], if ye have experienced a change of heart, and if ye have felt to sing the song of redeeming love, I would ask, can ye feel so now?"

In your own time, you can continue reading the talk or watch the video, here's the link below for the talk. lds.org/general-conference/2014/10/stay-in-the-boat-and-hold-on

Someone may ask me how does it applies to us; Well it applies to us by remaining to stay strong in the Church, read scriptures, daily personal prayers, attending the Temple often, attending Church activities, fulfilling Church callings  and gaining and building a stronger testimony. It helps you to build your faith more into Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father.

Please remember of the quote that I have shared with you.

Stay Tuned until next time.
