This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.—1 Timonthy 3:1
In all the world there is nothing quite like the office of bishop in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Except for parents, the bishop has the best opportunity to teach and to cause to be taught the things that matter most.—Boyd K. Packer
