Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:—Acts 10:34
Small, steady, incremental spiritual improvements are the steps the Lord would have us take. Preparing to walk guiltless before God is one of the primary purposes of mortality and the pursuit of a lifetime; it does not result from sporadic spurts of intense spiritual activity. —David A. Bednar
