the flesh

i was given a book for my birthday. an easy read.
it is filled with gems.
here's my very, very favorite:



...he opened up his scriptures, and asked,"What is the worth of your soul?"  Then, in silence, he waited.   Immediately, I answered that question in my mind: The worth of a soul is great! D&C 18:10.  After a long pause, Brother Hill leaned into the mic and asked the question a second time.  He waited a few seconds and then read the verse I had thought of: "Remember, the worth of souls is great in the sight of God." He emphasized the word great.  And then he said loudly, "But...that is not the true worth of your soul."   ... He continued, "The worth of your soul," he explained, "is found in the verse that immediately follows verse 10.  It is there that we find the worth of a soul.  'For, behold, the Lord your Redeemer suffered death in the flesh; wherefore he suffered the pain of all men, that all men might repent and come unto him." In other words, your soul is worth...the life...of a God. You are worth the life of a God. That is the worth of your soul.

i can feel it in the deepest parts of my being.

YOU are worth the life of a God.  He loves ALL of you.
