Spiritual Preparation for the Second Coming | 26 January 2023

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! We need to make both temporal and spiritual preparations for the events of the Second Coming—the spiritual preparation is the one more likely to be neglected.

Scripture

And it shall come to pass, that whoso repenteth and is baptized in my name shall be filled; and if he endureth to the end, behold, him will I hold guiltless before my Father at that day when I shall stand to judge the world.3 Nephi 27:16

Quote

We need to make both temporal and spiritual preparation for the events prophesied at the time of the Second Coming. And the preparation most likely to be neglected is the one less visible and more difficult—the spiritual. A 72-hour kit of temporal supplies may prove valuable for earthly challenges, but, as the foolish virgins learned to their sorrow, a 24-hour kit of spiritual preparation is of greater and more enduring value.Dallin H. Oaks
