Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! We must be wide awake to our duty as children of God.
Behold, he changed their hearts; yea, he awakened them out of a deep sleep, and they awoke unto God. Behold, they were in the midst of darkness; nevertheless, their souls were illuminated by the light of the everlasting word.—Alma 5:7
We must be awake to our duty and continue with faith as we draw upon the comforting, strengthening, enabling, and healing power of the Atonement.—Carole M. Stephens

What distracts us from the illuminating light of God?
