Today's Maxwell Quote

From That My Family Should Partake (1974), 54-55:
Elder Bruce R. McConkie of the Council of the Twelve, in reflecting on his parents, shares these interesting insights:
Everything in my parents' home was gospel-centered, gospel-oriented, gospel-governed. Day in and day out we talked about the principles of the gospel—not in a speculative way, not dwelling upon the mysteries, not considering hidden and unrevealed matters that have little bearing upon gaining salvation. Rather, we pondered in our hearts the basic and fundamental things that men must believe and to which they must conform to gain eternal life. We rejoiced continually in the words of eternal life, hoping thereby to become inheritors in due course of that greatest of all the gifts of God.
