Doing Your Best.....

Doing your Best
Harold B. Lee

Ye must all stand before the judgment-seat of Christ, yea, every soul who belongs to the whole human family of Adam; and ye must stand to be judged of your works, whether they be good or evil.
(Mormon 3:20)

President Harold B. Lee said that we will be judged on our capacities and efforts.  “All you have to worry about is that you are doing your best in the place where you are today… There is nothing you can do about yesterday except repent.  That means if you made mistakes yesterday don’t be making them today.  Don’t worry about tomorrow, because you may have no tomorrows…if you can always witness honestly that whatever you did, you did to the best of your ability, and next day try improvement on that, when your life’s end comes, of you it can be said in truth, his was a successful life because he lived to the best that was in him…all [the Lord] asks is that we do our best; and that’s the measure by which we’ll be judged when that time comes”  The Lord sees our efforts; he knows our desires
