Matt, why the big frown?

They said in sacrament meeting that we’ll be getting a new bishop next week.

That’s right.

But I want you to keep being my bishop. What if the new one isn’t good enough or smart enough?

He won’t be! And neither was I. No one ever is.

But …

Anyone who tries to do any Church calling by his own power will fail. No matter how good or clever he is.

But anyone who seeks only to do the Lord’s will cannot fail.

Matt, the new bishop will be called of God, and he’ll do just fine.

I’ll pray for the new bishop to have the Lord’s help.

So will I.
