‚Decisions for Eternity‛ Elder Russell M. Nelson {

‚Decisions for Eternity‛ ‚Each day is a day of decision. President Thomas S. Monson has taught us that, ‘decisions determine destiny.’…You are never too young to learn, never too old to change. Your yearnings to learn and change come from a divinely instilled striving for eternal progression. Each day brings opportunity for decisions for eternity.‛

D&C 6:14 ‚Verily, verily, I say unto thee, blessed art thou for what those hast done; for thou hast inquired of me, and behold, as often as thou hast inquired thou hast received instruction of my Spirit. If it had not been so, thou wouldst not have come to the place where thou art at this time.‛

‚Decade of Decisions‛ 1. The decision to stay morally clean  2. The decision to serve in His Kingdom  3. The decision to follow the Prophets  4. The decision to accept & follow the will & timing of the Lord 

1. The decision to be morally clean  clip

‚A pivotal spiritual attribute is that of self-mastery- the strength to place reason over appetite. Selfmastery builds a strong conscience. And your conscience determines, tempting, and trying situations.‛

2. The Decision to serve in His Kingdom

Find an example in the scriptures of a person, or group, that had to make a decision to serve in the kingdom.

3. Decision to follow His Prophets

4. Decision to accept & follow the will & timing of the Lord

Elder Oaks, ‚Timing‛

What do we learn in the process of waiting?

‚Continue in patience‛

Any final thoughts? What are you taking away today?

Would your pre-mortal self would be happy with your mortal self, because your post-mortal self depends on it.
