two lovely Sunday thoughts

“Verily I say unto you, all those who receive my gospel are sons and daughters in my kingdom. … Lay aside the things of this world, and seek for the things of a better. …Wherefore, lift up thy heart and rejoice, and cleave unto the covenants which thou hast made.” 
.....
“It takes courage and commitment to follow the promptings of the Spirit because they may frighten us as they lead us to walk along new paths, sometimes paths that no one has walked before, paths of the second mile, of acting totally differently from how worldly people act. For instance, we may be prompted to smile when someone offends us, to give love where others give hate, to say thank you where others would not find anything to be thankful for, to accept jobs that others would be too proud to do, to apologize where others would defend themselves, and to do all the seemingly crazy things that the Spirit prompts a righteous, honest, listening heart to do” 
-- Elder F. Enzio Busche, “The Only Real Treasure,” New Era, Dec. 1979, p. 5

both were just what i needed to read today.
