What Threatens Us as Latter-day Saints?


The only real danger that I foresee in the path of the Latter-day Saints is in the results which naturally follow the possession of wealthpride and vanity, self-indulgence and forgetfulness of God, and a disregard of the sacred obligations and duties that we owe to Him and to one another; and this because of the abundance of earthly blessings which He in His goodness has bestowed upon us. It is said that in adversity we are inclined to feel after the Lord, but that in prosperity we remember Him not. It appears to me that in this lies the greatest danger that threatens us to-day.” – Joseph F. Smith, “Journal of Discourses,” 26 vols., 24:174 – 176
