“You Mormons seem more concerned about standing before the Lord than your standing before the Lord,” he said.
“I don’t understand. Is that a double ontondre?” I said.
“Yes.” (I felt so much better) “Mormons are more concerned with the end of things, rather than the journey – the event than your condition – His vengeance than His approbation – death rather than the quality of life. All of your preparedness talk seems focused on avoiding death than learning how to live. You are a bunch of optimistic pessimists, waiting for the wicked to get what they deserve.”
And then I understood Pres. Kimball’s words: “life is a process, not a profession,” and I try to understand better each day my standing in His presence. Preparing is always to be on the Lord’s errand.
