The Israelites prayed that God would speak to Moses and not to them; in consequence of which he cursed them with a carnal law.

The time must come when there will be a separation between this kingdom and the kingdoms of this world, even in every point of view [D&C 63:53-54]. The time must come when this kingdom must be free and independent from all other kingdoms. Are you prepared to have the thread cut to-day?

Missionary work is different in nature than any other position, and is a great privilege and blessing to be involved in, and a very small gift to give. Missionary work is the payment of a tithe of your life to the advancement of the work of God in all the world...Missionaries who are prayerful, obedient and who work hard will be given some measure of harvest, for which you will be grateful all the days of your life...You will never be able to judge the consequences of that which you do as a missionary...If you bring someone into the Church and that individual stays in the Church, the harvest will go on and on, growing and growing through the years and through generations of time...We place tremendous confidence in you. We count on you to do a superb job. No less than the best will do. You must do your very, very best.Author: Gordon B. Hinckley, Source: LDS Church News, July 4, 1998
