My Favorite Scripture

Ether 15:34 “Now the last words which are written by Ether are these: Whether the Lord will that I be translated, or that I suffer the will of the Lord in the flesh, it mattereth not, if it so be that I am saved in the kingdom of God. Amen.”

In Ether’s last words that he felt important to pass on to us, he says that he doesn’t care about whether or not he dies or is translated as long as he makes it to God’s kingdom. This teaches us that even though all of the things of this world, such as sports, are fun, they are not even close to the importance of making it to the celestial kingdom.
