Sometimes We Must Increase Our Efforts to Be in Tune Spiritually
Doctrine and Covenants 9:5, 7
5 And, behold, it is because that you did not continue as you commenced, when you began to translate, that I have taken away this privilege from you. . . .
7 Behold, you have not understood; you have supposed that I would give it unto you, when you took no thought save it was to ask me.
Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin said:
“To soundly plant good seeds in your heart requires prolonged, intense, unremitting pondering. It is a deep, ongoing, regenerating process which refines the soul.”
