The learning of man has its limitations. And sometimes, as in our circumstance in rural Mexico, the combined learning of many experts cannot be applied when we need it most. We have to place trust in the Lord.


A chosen occupation is only a means to an end; it is not an end in itself.


The end for which each of you should strive is to be the person that you can become the person that God wants you to be. The day will come when your professional career will end. . . . The career that you will have labored so hard to achieve the work that will have supported you and your family will one day be behind you.


Then you will have learned this great lesson: Much more important than what you have done for a living, is what kind of a person you have become.


Keep learning and preparing for your ultimate graduation day. From time to time ask yourself these questions: 'Am I ready to meet my Maker?' 'Am I worthy of all the blessings He has in store for His faithful children?' 'Have I received my endowment and sealing ordinances of the temple?' 'Have I remained faithful to my covenants?' 'Have I qualified for the greatest of all God's blessings the blessing of eternal life?'
