“There is only one way you can pay the debt you owe your parents and the Lord and that is to give service. The Lord has given you life. He has given you everything you have. You didn’t earn it and you didn’t buy it. Your parents sowed the seed that you might descend and become a son of God or a daughter of God. So, when you think, ‘What could I do to repay?’ I don’t think you could give money, because it goes up and down and deteriorates. You could say, ‘I’m going to give You my life, all my years, all my effort’ ” (The Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, p. 252).
