I had the opportunity the other day to apply the counsel in this quote. I came across a situation where I could have easily justified "self-righteous" action, and ended up checking my religion at the door, but I decided not to. You know, it felt really good. I had the Spirit with me, and felt an assurance that I had acted well. That kind of feeling is irreplaceable. And I was so grateful for a friend who thanked me afterward for my example, and told me that it had helped them make the right decision too.
That Elder Holland: he sure knows what he's talking about.
