“And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children.” —3 Nephi 22:13
“God’s love is so perfect that He lovingly requires us to obey His commandments because He knows that only through obedience to His laws can we become perfect, as He is. For this reason, God’s anger and His wrath are not a contradiction of His love but an evidence of His love. Every parent knows that you can love a child totally and completely while still being creatively angry and disappointed at that child’s self-defeating behavior.” —Dallin H. Oaks
