Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Patient endurance grows our faith and prepares us for greater glory.
And all they who suffer persecution for my name, and endure in faith, though they are called to lay down their lives for my sake yet shall they partake of all this glory.—Doctrine and Covenants 101:35
Patient endurance is to be distinguished from merely being “acted upon.” Endurance is more than pacing up and down within the cell of our circumstance; it is not only acceptance of the things allotted to us, it is to “act for ourselves” by magnifying what is allotted to us. —Neal A. Maxwell
