Thought of the day.

"For most of us . . . what is required is not to die for the Church but to live for it. For many, living a Christ-like life every day may be even more difficult than laying down one's life. . . .
"Many think that the price of discipleship is too costly and too burdensome. For some, it involves giving up too much. But the cross is not as heavy as itappears to be. Through obedience we acquire much greater strength to carry it."
(James E. Faust, "Discipleship," Ensign, Nov. 2006, 22)

I love how you always post good quotes and stuff on your blog. Not to sound hokey or anything but I heard the Battle Hymn of the Republic on the radio today (because of the Pope being in Washington) and the line "As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free" made me think of this quote!
