You think that if your offering is not quite perfect, it is not acceptable. I tell you, however, that if you have done your best, which you usually do, your humble offering, whatever it may be, will be acceptable and pleasing to the Lord” (James E. Faust, “Instruments in the Hands of God”, Ensign, November 2005). “God magnifies those He calls, even in what may seem to you a small or inconspicuous service. You will have the gift of seeing your service magnified. Give thanks while that gift is yours. You will appreciate its worth more than you can imagine when it is gone. The Lord will not only magnify the power of your efforts. He will work with you Himself.” (Henry B. Eyring, “Rise to Your Call,” General Conference, Oct. 2002)“.. the Mortal Messiah willingly lived so modestly, even, wrote Paul, as a person “of no reputation.” (Philip. 2:7) What a contrast to our maneuverings over relative recognition and comparative status. How different, too, from the ways in which some among us mistakenly see the size and response of their audiences as the sole verification of their worth. Yet those fickle galleries we sometimes play to have a way of being constantly emptied. They will surely be empty at the Judgment Day, when everyone will be somewhere else, on their knees.” (1989–A:62, Neal A. Maxwell, Irony: The Crust on the Bread of Adversity)—Talk of Him is presented by Seagull Book and hosted by Ganel-Lyn Condie and John Fossum.
