Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord. . . . - Psalm 25:15

"Why is the Lord so strict in requiring detailed obedience from us? It is because He expects us to become perfect as He is," said Elder Mark E. Petersen of the Council of the Twelve during the April 1977 general conference. "The very object of our existence as children of God is to become like Him. But no unclean thing may enter his presence. Therefore we must perfect ourselves, beginning here in mortality, keeping in mind that we cannot achieve perfection through imperfect means."We are to give our religion first priority in our lives, and then serve God with all our hearts and do unto others as we would be done by as we travel down the road to Jericho."
