a crown worth seeking

"...Let honesty, and sobriety, and candor, and solemnity, and virtue, and pureness, and meekness, and simplicity crown our heads in every place; and in fine, become as little children, without malice, guile or hypocrisy. And now,...after your tribulations, if you do these things, and exercise fervent prayer and faith in the sight of God always, He shall give unto you knowledge by His Holy Spirit, yea by the unspeakable gift of the Holy Ghost."

I had to fill in last minute and teach a lesson in RS today... this paragraph hit home. No malice. No hypocrisy. Gaining Knowledge of Eternal Truths. One word at a time.

Everytime I act as a little child, everyone tells me to grow up... What's that all about?

I bet you'll be doing that a lot - sounds like you did a great job! Where's the quote from?

quote is from the Joseph Smith manual we're using this year. page 267, lesson on Gaining Knowledge of Eternal Truths.
