Look, Endure, Live.

"Behold, I am the law, and the light. Look unto me, and endure to the end, and ye shall live."
3 Nephi 15:9

The simplicity of this scripture struck me today in contrast with all of the sophistries being preached in society and the general sentiment that we can't know and so shouldn't take into account the things of God.

But this is the compass: we look to the Savior, follow his example, and seek His Spirit, enduring faithfully, and then we live--not just in the sense that we remain alive, but we live to the fulness of our potential, with purpose and meaning and joy and peace. We live "the abundant life," as President Monson and Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin, among others, have called it.
