Put God’s Laws First

family in field

“The word religion literally means … ‘to tie back’ to God. The question we might ask ourselves is, are we securely tied to God so that our faith shows, or are we actually tied to something else? … Many put other priorities ahead of God. … God’s laws must ever be our standard. In dealing with controversial issues, we should first search for God’s guidance. …

“The temptation to be popular may prioritize public opinion above the word of God. … Even if ‘everyone is doing it,’ wrong is never right. … I pray that you will be securely tied back to God, that His eternal truths will be etched on your heart forever.”

Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, “Let Your Faith Show,” Ensign, May 2014, 29, 30, 31.
