Dieter F. Uchtdorf - Saturday am session

Recommended Posts

We all are mortal. I hope this doesn’t come as a surprise to many of us.

We won’t be on this life long.

Our spirits are taken home to the God that gave us life.

The older we get the more we tend to look back and marvel how short the road (life) really is.

We remember the wonderful things in our life but we also remember the regrets. We think of the things we wish we could go back and change.

The foundation of Jesus Christ can affect our foundation of life if only we would apply them.

The most universal regret that dying patients have is the wish they could spend more time with the people they love.

We often wear our “busyness” as a badge of honor.

Technology can be a wonderful thing and is very useful when we can’t be near loved ones.

We are not headed in the right direction when we use the internet to remain connected with the click of a mouse. We need to have more personal face to face connections.

If we fail to give our best personal self, one day we will regret it.

Our Heavenly Father sees our real potential. He knows things about us that we don’t know ourselves.

Why do we devote so much of our time to things that are so fleeting?

When it comes to living the gospel we should not be like the boy who dipped his toe in the water and claimed he went swimming.

We must become what Heavenly Father wants us to be.

Declaring our testimony of the gospel is good but being an example is better.

Discipleship is a pursuit of holiness and happiness.

It is the path to our best and happiest self.

Let us listen to and obey the promptings of the Holy Spirit.

The more we devote ourselves to the holiness and happiness the more we will stay off the paths of regrets.

Another regret of those dying is wishing they had been happier.

We determine our happiness. We are in charge of our happiness.

Sometimes we become so focused on the finish line that we fail to enjoy the journey.

Life is not meant to only be appreciated in retrospect.

There is something in each day to be cherished.

We are commanded to give thanks in all things.

Let us resolve to be happy regardless of our circumstances.

One day we will look back our lives and wonder if we could have been better, made better decisions or used our time more wisely.

Let’s make resolutions today.

Make more time with those we love.

Many of the regrets of tomorrow can we saved by making decisions to follow the Savior today.

His atonement allows us to leave the past behind.

Because of the merciful Christ we will all live again and forever.

We must begin to walk that eternal path today. We must not wait until we are ready to die before we truly learn to live.
