Quote of the Day: Spencer W. Kimball

Spencer W. Kimball 12th President of the Church

“People who are concerned about the prosperity of the wicked are sometimes blinded to their own weaknesses yet magnify greatly the errors of others. ... The wicked may prosper for a time, the rebellious may seem to profit by their transgressions, but the time is coming when, at the bar of justice, all men will be judged, ‘every man according to their works.’ ( Rev. 20:13 .) No one will ‘get by’ with anything. On that day no one will escape the penalty of his deeds, no one will fail to receive the blessings he has earned” ( The Miracle of Forgiveness [1969], 304–5).

What a great man he was! Growing up, my entire youth was spent knowing him as "the Prophet." And I still struggle sometimes with what he is saying in this quote. Thanks for posting this!
