Tidbit Tuesday - God's Mercy

"The mercy of God is personalized.  Aaron's behavior in the golden calf episode was not his finest hour, yet later a priesthood was named after him.  There are so many ways in which God demonstrates His long-suffering, mercy, and generosity, often by providing us with the necessary experiences of record, opportunities to learn fundamental spiritual truth for ourselves.

"On the road to Emmaus, the resurrected Jesus could have told the two disciples at once with Whom they conversed.  Instead, He let them learn later, upon reflection, what it meant to have had their hearts "burn" within them.  How many times in the days to follow did those so tutored have cause to recognize and be guided by a burning in their bosom?"

-Neal A. Maxwell
