Your PPI with Christ

Ever wonder what that will be like? Apparently David O. McKay had a pretty good idea:

Let me assure you brethren, that someday you will have a personal Priesthood interview with the Savior himself.  If you are interested, I will tell you the order in which he will ask you to account for your earthly responsibilities.
First:  He will request an accountability report about your relationship with your wife.  Have you actively been engaged in making her happy and ensuring that her needs have been met as an individual?

Second:  He will want an accountability about each of your children individually.  He will not attempt to have this for simply a family stewardship, but will request information about your relationship with each and every child.

Third:  He will want to know what you personally have done with the talents you were given in the pre­-mortal world.

Fourth:  He will want a summary of your activity in your church assignments.  He will not be necessarily interested in what assignments you have had, for in His eyes the home teacher and a mission president are probably equals, but He will request a summary of how you have been of service to your fellowmen in your church assignments.

Fifth:  He will have no interest in how you earned your living, but if you were honest in all your dealings.

Sixth:  He will ask for accountability on what you have done to contribute in a positive manner to your community, state, country, and the world.

Not surprising, except in its specificity as to the order of the questions. Some good food for thought. You can read an awesome devotional centered around these questions here.
