For after much tribulation, as I have said unto you in a former commandment, cometh the blessing.—Doctrine and Covenants 103:12

He wanted to know who had roots of faith and testimony that reached deep into the ground and who had such shallow roots that the first wind of adversity would blow them over.—Loren C. Dunn
