32. "In our Heavenly Father's great priesthood-endowed plan, men have the unique responsibility to administer the priesthood, but they are not the priesthood. Men and women have different but equally valued roles. Just as a woman cannot conceive a child without a man, so a man cannot fully exercise the power of the priesthood to establish an eternal family without a woman. In other words, in the eternal perspective, both the procreative power and the priesthood power are shared by husband and wife. And as husband and wife, a man and a woman should strive to follow our Heavenly Father. The Christian virtues of love, humility, and patience should be their focus as they seek the blessings of the priesthood in their lives and for their family."
Author: M. Russell Ballard
33. "How can we be directly in God, neither striving nor seeking for anything other than him, and how can we be so poor and give up everything? It is hard counsel that we should not desire any reward. Now be certain of this: God never ceases to give us everything. Even if he had sworn not to, he still could not help giving us things. It is far more important to him to give than it is for us to receive, but we should not focus upon this, for the less we strive for it, the more God will give us. God intends thereby only that we should become yet more rich and be all the more capable of receiving things from him."
Author: Meister Eckhart

Today's Quote

El mundo nunca supo tanto de sí mismo y de su naturaleza como ahora, pero no le sirve de nada. Siempre hubo maremotos, fíjese. Lo que pasa es que antes no pretendíamos tener hoteles de lujo en primera línea de playa... El hombre crea eufemismos y cortinas de huo para negar las leyes de la naturaleza. También para negar la infame condición que le es propia. Y cada despertar le cesta los doscientos muertos de un avión que se cae, los doscientos mil de un tsunami o el millón de una guerra civil."
