The Challenge to Become

"In contrast to institutions of the world, which teach us to know something,
the gospel of Jesus Christ challenges us to become something."
 - Dallin H. Oaks

What have we become? What are we working towards?
I have so many goals in life and one of them is to become more Christ-like. He lived a perfect life and I know that I am no where near that, but it is the little things we do every day that bring us closer and closer to our goals of becoming more like him. The word conversion is defined as a change in character, form or function. We qualify for eternal life through conversion. This means we are here to change. We are here to change our character. To become something. Take this challenge that we have and work towards becoming something great.

  1. LOVE that quote! Thanks for sharing that. It definitely is important when applied to family life, whether we are married, parents, or single. We need to constantly be looking at our actions to see if they reflect our innermost desires to become a righteous wife, husband, mother or father.
