"Attendance at sacrament meetings adds oil to our lamps, drop by drop over the years. Fasting, family prayer, home teaching, control of bodily appetites, preaching the gospel, studying the scriptures--each act of dedication and obedience is a drop added to our store. Deeds of kindness, payment of offerings and tithes, chaste thoughts and actions, marriage in the covenant for eternity--these, too, contribute importantly to the oil with which we can at midnight refuel our exhausted lamps."
President Spencer W. Kimball, Faith Precedes the Miracle, 256
I'm grateful for the perspective of seeing temple attendance in a different way. Each time we go, we are blessed and spiritually filled, drop by drop.
Drops of obedience every day, prepares us to attend the temple.
The time is quickly coming when the Kansas City Temple will be open. Are we ready? Let us fill our vessels by following the counsel of our prophets.
