“To become worthy, we make choices that will enable us to return to our Heavenly Father’s presence. We do those things which will qualify us to claim all the blessings that He has in store for us. This is the reason we are here on the earth—’to see if [we] will do all things whatsoever the Lord … shall command.’ It is through our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ that we can resist temptation. Our faith will enable us to shun evil. It will be repulsive to us because ‘light cleaveth unto light’ and ‘virtue loveth virtue.’ ”

“The Lord directed parents to ‘bring up [their] children in light and truth.’ He also instructed us to teach our children ‘to pray, and to walk uprightly before the Lord,’ and ‘to understand the doctrine of repentance, faith in Jesus Christ, … and of baptism and the gift of the Holy Ghost.’ We help tune their ears, minds, and hearts to recognize ‘a voice of gladness’ and desire to be worthy to obtain eternal joy when we teach the truths of the gospel.

“This is exemplified in the Book of Mormon. Enos’s father taught him ‘in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.’ This great blessing caused Enos to proclaim, ‘Blessed be the name of my God for it.’ Enos then explains, ‘The words which I had often heard my father speak concerning eternal life, and the joy of the saints, sunk deep into my heart.’ ”
