    Songs Sung and Unsung


    We all have days when we feel low and out of tune—like we have nothing of value to contribute. We may struggle to avoid comparing ourselves to others. In times like these, we need to remember that we’re supposed to be unique and different and that we too have a special place in God’s choir. Elder Jeffrey R. Holland reminds us, “It is by divine design that not all the voices in God’s choir are the same. It takes variety—sopranos and altos, baritones and basses—to make rich music.”

    You fill an important role in God’s choir and can’t be replaced. “Believe in yourself, and believe in Him. Don’t demean your worth or denigrate your contribution. Above all, don’t abandon your role in the chorus. … Stay permanently and faithfully in the choir, where [you] will be able to savor forever that most precious anthem of all—‘the song of redeeming love.’” —Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
