Latter-day Saint Life

President Nelson Shares What Our "Highest Priority" Is as Latter-day Saints


We live in a world of choices; from the clothes we wear to the language we use, everything is a choice. But there's one choice, one truth we should always seek.

President Russell M. Nelson shared in a recent Facebook post what we as Latter-day Saints should always strive for with our choices, and what should be our highest priority. 

Your choices will not all be between good and evil. Many will be choices between two good options. Not all truths are created equal, so you will need to establish priorities.
In your pursuit of knowledge, know that the most important truth you can learn comes from the Lord. In His Intercessory Prayer to His Father, the Savior Himself confirmed this. He said, “This is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” Above everything else you are seeking to learn, seek to know God, your Heavenly Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ. Come to know Them and love Them, as I do.
Another priority scripture that has helped me throughout my life is this one: “Seek ye first to build up the kingdom of God, and to establish his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
More than anything else in this world, you want to make choices that lead to the ultimate and glorious destiny of eternal life. That is God’s great glory for you. Choose eternal life as your highest priority!
