D turned on the TV this morning and stumbled across an address by Dallin H. Oaks on KBYU.
The Lord warned the first generation of Latter-day Saints to “beware concerning yourselves” (D&C 84:43). I seek to remind each of us of the mortal susceptibilities and devilish diversions that can unite to produce our spiritual downfall.
He goes on to cover such topics as:
- Gospel Hobbies
- Misapplication of Spiritual Gifts
- A Desire to Be Led in All Things
- An Intense Focus on Goals
- Neglect or Distortion of Family Duties
and others. Go. Read. Enjoy.
