Elder Packer: How We're All Like Luke Skywalker & Harry Potter

We are all chosen and on a divine quest--not only the journey of a lifetime, but one that will carry on into the eternities.

Elder Allan F. Packer of the Quorum of the Seventy encouraged students to fully utilize mortality’s “quest of a lifetime” in the process of perfection at the Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2016 devotional.

Elder Packer encouraged students to tap into their divine potential and be a positive force against the rising opposition in today’s world.

“You must gain the skills, convictions, courage, wisdom and confidence to help make a difference for yourself and others,” Elder Packer said.

He likened each person’s “royal heritage” to purpose – seeking literary characters such as Luke Skywalker and Harry Potter. He said these individuals were destined for incredible things.
