Lorenzo Snow

“If a father were to say to his son, ‘My son, be faithful, and follow my counsels, and when you become of age you shall inherit all that I possess,’ it would mean something, would it not? If the father told the truth, that son would have something to encourage him to be faithful. Did Jesus want to deceive us when He made use of this expression? I will assure you that there is no deception in the language. He meant precisely what He said” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Lorenzo Snow, p. 87).
