January 15, 2021 - Focus on increasing your own light

With great concern we observe the political and cultural divisions in the United States and around the world. We condemn violence and lawless behavior, including the recent violence in Washington, D.C. and any suggestion of further violence. While The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is neutral in matters of party politics, we remind our members—whatever their individual political views—to be united in our commitment to the Savior, Jesus Christ, and His teachings. As His followers, we should treat one another and all of God’s children with respect, dignity, and love. No political or other affiliation should supersede that covenant and sacred responsibility.

First Presidency, statement to the nation and world, Church News, January 15, 2021

It's going to be a challenge to watch this country and it's Constitution hang by a thread. I'm not saying that it will happen right away, but it will digress to that point, we know this. Prophets have told us. Good news is we know, also, that it won't completely go away so there still will be some semblance of the promised land we live in.

That's why it is imperative that we maintain civility amongst ourselves and, hopefully, that influence will permeate out. Love everyone despite their actions. We need to be the beacon of light that others flock to in the darkness.

This world will get worse before the Second Coming. Question is, will we get worse right along with it, like the old saying, the blind leading the blind? Or, will we have our eyes wide open, seeing everything that is happening, and then recognizing what's happening. Will we get better? Will we get closer to the Lord when society moves further away?

That betterment begins with each of us individually, then that example, that influence, will rest upon those around us. Our light grows as we get closer to Christ. As our own individual light gets brighter, more and more will be able to see it and walk towards it, towards Christ, themselves.
