I love the vivid beauty of these well-said words:
- “For by the water ye keep the commandment; by the Spirit ye are justified, and by the blood ye are sanctified.” Moses 6:60
I wish everyone saw beauty like me but I know that this is true:
- “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14
President Thomas S. Monson said:
The term natural man can refer to any of us if we allow ourselves to be so. We must be vigilant in a world which has moved so far from that which is spiritual. It is essential that we reject anything that does not conform to our standards, refusing in the process to surrender that which we desire most: eternal life in the kingdom of God.
I know that the things I find beautiful are foolishness to many people, but I’m not deterred. All I can do is say what I think and stand by what I say. To those who also see beauty in the above scripture I say, “Stand strong and have courage.”
