What I say unto one I say unto all.

It is required of us to forgive all men.

VS. 5 Admonition (Blue Hymnal), Who so lusteth after pleasure, High estate or mammon's store- envious or proud remaineth tho' he gain the world, is poor. If you would be rich, be holy! Would you dwell all heights above? Heed ye, then, this admonition: Climb to atmospheres of love.
Section 76: 2, He will honor those who serve Him in righteousness and in truth unto the end.
For by His spirit He will enlighten us.
Mosiah 1:22-26, Alma 17: 76-80
The words of Christ, If we follow their course will carry us beyond this vale of sorrow into a far better land of promise. Is there not a type in this thing?
Alma 5: 39-42
We must have faith, hope and charity.
3 Nephi 8:53-55
Hold up your light so that it may shine unto the world. Behold, I am the light which ye shall hold up--that which ye have seen me do.
Ope your vision to the day
no more to sin, find the way.
Your heavenly king would implore,
his holy precepts to adore.
Trust in His counsel, to you by choice,
listen to His words, learn His voice.
A matter of time would you find
the way back home, no longer roam.
His son the savior should you choose,
in your warfare will not lose.
Kindly deeds and truthful labor
will increase your heavenly favor.
Study, prayer and fasting lending
waits for judgement yet impending.
Hear this counsel while today,
heedless wandering comes the fray.
