Quote of the Day: Donald L. Staheli

Elder Donald L. Staheli, a member of the Seventy:

“Regardless of our age and stage in life, daily obedience to gospel principles is the only sure way to eternal happiness. President Ezra Taft Benson put it most poignantly when he said, ‘When obedience ceases to be an irritant and becomes our quest, in that moment God will endow us with power.’” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1998, 108; or Ensign, May 1998, 82 ).

Oh, I wish I'd remembered that quote for my lesson on Sunday. I really like it. Thanks for sharing!

I like the Biblical notion that we are to live our lives in obedience to God, but somehow get annoyed with those who say we live our lives in "surrender" to God, as if he is an enemy who conquered us rather than our heavenly father. But perhaps rather than complaining about "surrender", I should redirect to "obedience".
