Worthiness Is Not Measured by Perfection

Today we share the quote of the day: "To be worthy does not mean to be perfect,” said Gerrit W. Gong of the Presidency of the Seventy.

Elder Gong explained, “Heavenly Father’s plan of happiness invites us to be humbly at peace on our life’s journey to someday become perfected in Christ, not constantly worried, frustrated, or unhappy in our imperfections today. Remember, He knows all the things we don’t want anyone else to know about us—and loves us still.”

Remember the story of the Prodigal Son, who demanded his father give him his inheritance and wasted it on worldly living. When he returned in shame and sorrow, expecting his father to treat him no better than a servant, his father ran to him and hugged him.

Similarly, your Heavenly Father will always have compassion on you.

What small change could you make today to be a little better than you were before?
