Be Honest With Yourself: Add Prayer

From 1961 —

Add Prayer

Life is learning. as youths, we go to school and are crammed with facts and theories. Into our books we dig; out of our books we learn, while our teachers test us for progress.

First, there’s reading and writing. Then, presto! almost before we know it, we go on to study and explore the wide, wide world of facts and fancies, of theories and things.

Out of all this learning come questions:

Which is true? Which is false?

What is right? What is wrong?

How can we know good from evil?

How can we be sure about moral and spiritual values?

What is “gospel truth”?

Nineteen centuries ago, Paul, the learned Christian apostle, pointed the way – the one way – to understand eternal truths.

God has set in the church, said Paul, apostles and prophets “that we be no more … tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine …”

In our day, also, God has set at the head of His Church a living prophet and counseled us that we give heed to all his words.

So let us keep on learning from classrooms and books – but let us also live and learn by faith and prayers.
