March 3, 2021 - I love to see the temple

You are never lost when you can see the temple. The temple will provide direction for you and your family in a world filled with chaos. It is an eternal guidepost which will help you from getting lost in the “mist of darkness.” It is the house of the Lord. It is a place where covenants are made and eternal ordinances are performed.

Elder Gary E. Stevenson, "Sacred Homes, Sacred Temples", General Conference, April 2009


Especially now, when we can't attend the temple, where being inside that marvelous edifice brings peace and comfort, where we enter into sacred covenants that give us strength when we strive to keep them, but that doesn't mean that the temple will not bring us peace, strength, and direction anyway, as we look to it.


We can still be around the temple, if we can't be inside it. Maybe walk the grounds where possible. If we can't be on temple grounds, we can still face the temple, and intentionally find it and look at it, and ponder on its importance in our lives.


Like the staff of Moses, all we need to do is look and it has power to heal us. But, because of "the easiness" of doing that, we don't think we need to. That's how our peace gets disrupted.


Amid these times, when members can’t be in the temple, the question is: “Is the temple in us? Are the ordinances and the covenants in us?” - Elder David A. Bednar
