Stay By the Tree

Posted by AJ Gubernick on

St. George Temple, Tree Vertical Plaque

“Enduring to the end is a hallmark of true discipleship and is essential to eternal life. But

when trials and challenges come our way, we are often told to simply “hang in there.” Let

me be clear: to “hang in there” is not a principle of the gospel. Enduring to the end means

constantly coming unto Christ and being perfected in Him.

If enduring to the end is essential to eternal life, why do we struggle to be faithful? We

struggle when we are caught between competing priorities. Casual obedience and

lukewarm commitment weaken faith. Enduring to the end requires total commitment to

the Savior and to our covenants.”

In Lehi’s dream, people that held onto the rod endured and experienced happiness. We

must make a commitment now to hold to the rod and avoid getting distracted with things

that are not important.

Stay by the Tree –Elder Kevin W. Pearson
