“The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.” —Psalm 37:31
“Self-reliance is a product of provident living and exercising economic self-discipline. From the beginning, the Church has taught that families—to the extent they can—need to assume responsibility for their own temporal welfare. Each generation is required to learn anew the foundational principles of self-reliance: avoid debt, implement principles of thrift, prepare for times of distress, listen to and follow the words of the living oracles, develop the discipline to distinguish between needs and wants and then live accordingly.” —H. David Burton
