A Quote by Thomas S. Monson on christ, colors, god, jesus, jokes, language, vulgarity, and words

How you speak and the words you use tell much about the image you choose to portray. Use language to build and uplift those around you. Profane, vulgar, or crude language and inappropriate or off-color jokes are offensive to the Lord. Never misuse the name of God or Jesus Christ. The Lord said, "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain" (Ex. 20:7).

A Quote by Thomas S. Monson on jesus and questions

The question each of us must answer is ... What shall I do with Jesus? He Himself has provided us the answer: "Follow me, and do the things which ye have seen me do"

A Quote by Thomas S. Monson on birth, children, christ, god, jesus, power, sons, wealth, and weapons

With the birth of the Babe in Bethlehem, there emerged a great endowment, a power stronger than weapons, a wealth more lasting than the coins of Caesar. This child was to be the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the promised Messiah - even Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

A Quote by Thomas Jefferson on america, benevolence, certainty, character, christianity, country, effort, fatherhood, innocence, inventions, jesus, morality, religion, support, and traditions

The efforts of certain Christian factions to cast themselves as the inheritors of America's Judaeo-Christian tradition find little support in the embarrassing heterodoxy of this Founding Father: "But the greatest of all reformers of the depraved religion of his own country was Jesus of Nazareth. Abstracting what is really his from the rubbish in which it is buried, easily distinguished by its lustre from the dross of his biographers, and as separable as the diamond from the dunghill, we have the outlines of a system of the most sublime morality which has ever fallen from the lips of man; outlines which it is lamentable he did not live to fill up. . . . The establishment of the innocent and genuine character of this benevolent moralist, and the rescuing it from the imputation of imposture, which has resulted from artificial systems, invented by ultra-Christian sects, unauthorized by a single word ever uttered by him, is a most desirable object. . . ."

A Quote by Thomas á Kempis on companions, complaints, desires, jesus, love, lovers, mind, miracles, passion, praise, and shame

Jesus hath many lovers of His heavenly kingdom, but few bearers of His Cross. He hath many seekers of comfort, but few of tribulation. He findeth many companions of His table, but few of His fasting. All desire to rejoice with Him, few are willing to undergo anything for His sake. Many follow Jesus that they may eat of His loaves, but few that they may drink of the cup of His passion. Many are astonished at His miracles, few follow after the shame of His Cross. Many love Jesus so long as no adversities happen to them. Many praise Him and bless Him, so long as they receive any comforts from Him. But if Jesus hide Himself and withdraw a little while, they fall either into complaining or into too great dejection of mind.

A Quote by Susan Stafford on blindness, clarity, college, jesus, joy, mind, peace, sacred, serenity, sister, spirit, suffering, understanding, and work

While doing relief work in India I met Abdul. He was old, crippled and blind. He had been a college professor and spoke perfect English. His mind was sharp and clear, and he taught me much about India. Near the end of my stay I asked, "Abdul, what could I pray for - for you?" A smile illuminated his face, and he sighed, "Sister ... I don't know ... I have everything. I stood dumbfounded. This poor man, suffering terrible disfigurement, had everything? Then in his beautific smile I saw his joy, his serenity, his sacred calm. And I knew what Jesus meant when he told us, "Blessed are the poor in spirit." For, wanting nothing, Abdul had that peace which passes all understanding.

A Quote by Susan L. Warner on animals, christ, fatherhood, jesus, love, planning, sons, and world

Because our Heavenly Father wants us to know Him and to feel His love, He planned a world filled with magnificent creations that bear record of Him and His Son, Jesus Christ. Have you ever counted all the things that bear record of the Savior? There are sunsets and seashells, lilacs and lakes, insects and animals, miraculous mornings and star-strewn skies.

A Quote by Sterling W. Sill on business, failure, heaven, jesus, life, reason, sermons, success, time, and work

In the greatest sermon that was ever preached, the greatest man who ever lived gave the wisest counsel that has ever been given, in which He said, "lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, . . ." (Matthew 6:20.) Laying up earthly treasures is such an exciting process that we spend most of our time working at it. But Jesus pointed out some advantages to treasures in heaven. The moth and the rust cannot get at treasures in heaven quite so easily. Treasures in heaven are more permanent. They are more satisfying. There are only two reasons why we are not as successful as we would like to be in laying up earthly treasures. One is that we sometimes get into the wrong business; and the second reason is that even though we may be in the right business, we do not always work at it effectively. Interestingly enough, these are the same reasons why we fail in laying up treasures in heaven.

A Quote by Stephen Neill on christ, church, concern, danger, jesus, leadership, men, men and women, planning, and women

Is the leadership of the worldwide church in the hands of men and women who know how to lead others one by one to Jesus Christ? We are so concerned with planning and administration that there is a danger lest we allow these things to serve as an excuse for not doing the one thing on which all else depends.
