Virtuous thought

We read in Proverbs, that “…as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” ┬áIf we would be like unto our Christ, then we must discipline our manner of thinking, for after all, we are what we think. If we would be edified, we will surround ourselves with that which uplifts. It will show on our countenance. If, on the other hand, we spend our time in the presence and intake of filth, that too will be displayed for all to see. Consider then this beautiful verse of scripture: “…let virtue garnish thy thoughts unceasingly; then shall thy confidence wax strong in the presence of God; and the doctrine of the priesthood shall distil upon thy soul as the dews from heaven. The Holy Ghost shall be thy constant companion, and thy scepter an unchanging scepter of righteousness and truth…” (Doctrine and Covenants 121:45, 46)

Some of the greatest battles will be fought within the silent chambers of your own soul.  - Ezra Taft Benson
