something from sunday that felt good in my ears

posted on: October 4, 2012


"We poorly serve the cause of the Lord, at times, with programmatic superficiality and by our lack of empathy for those who drift in dispair.

Truly we live and walk on 'a streetful of splendid strangers,' whom we are to love and serve even if they are uninterested in us!

Therefore, seen through the eye of faith, the sweep of history is not evidence of a purposeless world. Instead, we see successive waves of humans, as the cast on this mortal stage changes, again and again."

--Neal A. Maxwell

  2. Wonderful, powerful, convicting reminder. I am too often guilty of a lack of empathy. It's time to try harder.

  3. Maxwell has this way of saying everything in the most profound and eloquent way. His talks, like you said, "feel good in your ears." Hope you had a fantastic conference weekend!
