March 4, 2021 - Temple Standards

[W]hen we become aware of elements in our own lives that are inconsistent with the teachings of the Lord, when our efforts have been less than our very best, we should move quickly to correct anything that is amiss, recognizing that we cannot hide our sins from the Lord.

Scott D. Whiting, "Temple Standard", General Conference, October 2012

This is a good talk about how seriously the church takes even the smallest of details when constructing a temple. Everything must be perfect. Absolutely nothing is flawed or out of place. That temple is, afterall, the House of the Lord. The best of what we have is for Him.

We know from the words of the Apostle Paul that we are each a temple of God - 1 Cor 3:16.

Do we set a high standard as we are constructing our own temples? And, then, as we dedicate our temples, yea, dedicate our lives to God, do we deny any unclean thing to enter into our temples?

Luckily for me, I am not expected to be perfect. I am, though, expected to try to be perfect, in everything I do. I fall short of that. Definitely. But, I try to get back up when I do fall and try again.
