“The greatest events of history are those that affect the greatest number of people for the longest periods. By this standard, no event could be more important to individuals or nations than the resurrection of the Master.
“The literal resurrection of every soul who has lived and died on earth is a certainty, and surely one should make careful preparation for this event. A glorious resurrection should be the goal of every man and woman, for resurrection will be a reality” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Ezra Taft Benson, p. 94).
The history of the nations of the world, from the beginning of time, has been influenced by the righteousness of the people and the hand of the Lord. Nations rise and fall, flourish and perish, as the Lord directs.
May each of us learn more of Joseph and his life, his example, and his teachings. May they lead us to a greater love of the Savior, Jesus Christ, and a greater love of our fellow men. May we strengthen our desire to become a Zion people.
