How They Served

President Eyring on those to whom the Lord will say "well done":

It will not be the offices held or the time served that will be weighed in the balance with the Lord. We know this from the Lord’s parable of the laborers in the vineyard, where the pay was the same regardless of how long they served or where. They will be rewarded for how they served.

Full talk here.

Prayer and Creation

I came across a little clip with this quote today (unfortunately I couldn't embed it here):

"Meaningful morning prayer is an important element in the spiritual creation of each day—and precedes the temporal creation or the actual execution of the day."

Here is the whole talk: Pray Always, by Elder David A. Bednar

I remember hearing this talk, but didn't notice the part emphasized here. I love that idea of the spiritual creation of each day; it makes me approach prayer in a more purposeful way.
