Let Us Oft Speak Kind Words

“As a people we are advised not to be critical, not to be unkind, not to speak harshly of those with whom we associate. We ought to be the greatest exemplars in all the world in that regard. Consider the criticism today. Pick up your newspapers and see the unkind things that are being said by individuals about others, and yet many times the individual who is criticizing has a beam in his own eye and does not see at all clearly, but he does think his brother has a mote in his eye” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: George Albert Smith, p. 226).


Twas the Night Before November 6…

T’was the night before elections,

And all thru’ the town,

Tempers were flaring

Emotions ran up and down.

I, in my bathrobe

With a cat in my lap,

Had shut off the TV,

tired of political crap.

When all of a sudden,

There arose such a noise,

I peered out my window,

Saw Obama and his boys

They had come for my wallet,

They wanted my pay

To hand out to others

Who had not worked a day!

He snatched up my money,

And quick as a wink,

Jumped back on his bandwagon

As I gagged from the stink.

He then rallied his henchmen

Who were pulling his cart.

I could tell they were out

To tear my country apart!

‘On Fannie, on Freddie,

On Biden and Ayers!

On Acorn, on Pelosi’

He screamed at the pairs!

They took off for his cause,

And as they flew out of sight,

I heard him laugh at a nation

Who wouldn’t stand up and fight!

So I leave you to think on this one final note…

This is God’s World

“Time is on the side of truth—and truth is eternal. Those who are fighting against freedom may feel confident now, but they are shortsighted.

“This is still God’s world. The forces of evil, working through some mortals, have made a mess of a good part of it. But it is still God’s world. In due time, when each of us has had a chance to prove ourselves—including whether or not we are going to stand up for freedom—God will interject himself, and the final and eternal victory shall be for free agency. . . . Take that long eternal look. Stand up for freedom, no matter what the cost. Stand up and be counted. It can help to save your soul—and maybe your country” (The Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, p. 592).

One Nation Under God

“Never can this or any other nation be safe under the leadership of arrogant, profane, puny little men without faith in God, no matter how much material or military power is put into their hands.

“Indeed the very assumption of such power except wisely directed under divine care could be the very power to destroy us. Would that we could again see a modern General George Washington who kneels at his Valley Forge, or see again through the half-open door into a modern Abraham Lincoln’s room in the White House the anguished form of a man kneeling in prayer and hear the low tones of that prayer:

“‘Oh, thou God that heard Solomon in the nigh when he prayed for wisdom, hear me. I cannot lead this people; I cannot guide the affairs of this nation without thy help. I am poor and weak and sinful. Oh God, who did hear Solomon when he cried for wisdom, hear me and save this nation'” (The Teachings of Harold B. Lee, p. 360).

Be Prepared and Protected

“We need to greatly increase religious observance in the home. Weekly family home evening and daily family prayer and scripture study are essential. We need to introduce into our homes content that is ‘virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy.’ If we make of our homes holy places that shelter us from evil, we will be protected from the adverse consequences that the scriptures have foretold.”
—Quentin L. Cook, “Let There Be Light!”, General Conference, October 2010
