Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Without self-reliance, we cannot fulfill our innate desires to serve God and build His kingdom. Here is how self-reliance can change your life.
And it is my purpose to provide for my saints, for all things are mine. But it must needs be done in mine own way.—Doctrine and Covenants 104:15-16
Without self-reliance one cannot exercise these innate desires to serve. How can we give if there is nothing there? Food for the hungry cannot come from empty shelves. Money to assist the needy cannot come from an empty purse. Support and understanding cannot come from the emotionally starved. Teaching cannot come from the unlearned. And most important of all, spiritual guidance cannot come from the spiritually weak.—Marion G. Romney
