Our beloved Prophet, President Thomas S. Monson gave two short but significant addresses. Here are a few thoughts from his messages as found on lds.org.
“We live in a time of great trouble and wickedness,” said President Thomas S. Monson. “What will protect us from the evil so prevalent in the world today?”
A Strong Testimony of Jesus Christ
“I maintain that a strong testimony of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and of His gospel will help see us through to safety.”
More Kindness, Charity, and Love
“We do not honor the priesthood of God if we are not kind to others.”“Let us examine our lives and determine to follow the Savior’s example by being kind, loving, and charitable. As we do so, we will be in a better position to call down the powers of heaven for ourselves, for our families, and for our fellow travelers in this sometimes difficult journey back to our heavenly home.”
Daily, Prayerful Study of the Book of Mormon“I speak about the power of the Book of Mormon and the critical need we have as members of this Church to study, ponder, and apply its teachings in our lives.”
“As we do so, we will be in a position to hear the voice of the Spirit, to resist temptation, to overcome doubt and fear, and to receive heaven’s help in our lives.”
A Testimony of the Holy Priesthood of God
“The holy priesthood of God has been restored for the benefit and blessing of His children.”A Testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
This “is the Lord’s Church here on the earth. … If you do not have a firm testimony of these things, do that which is necessary to obtain one.”
Developing firm testimonies of the things that matter most; continued obedience to God’s commandments; daily prayer; more dedicated following of the Savior’s example of kindness, love, and charity; and studying the Book of Mormon every day. That is the counsel from our prophet today. That is how we will find protection in this time of great trouble and wickedness."
