"The Substance of Things Hoped For: Where Faith and Works Meet"
The Substance of Things Hoped For: Where Faith and Works MeetI prayed earnestly over what I might say to you today. During my active years of general authority service, it was my privilege to speak to a number of Latter-day Saint congregations of students at various institutions—BYU, University of Utah, Weber College, elsewhere—and I’m very much aware of the fact that, at this stage of your life as students and coming to devotionals like this, you’re very accustomed to receiving advice. Being a student, particularly at a Church school where we have a significant group of LDS students, is much like going on a mission or getting married—there is just no shortage of advice that’s available to you at that time. So I thought I might take something of a bit of a different tack with you this morning.
