“Being Mistreated is the most important condition of mortality, for eternity itself depends on how we view those who mistreat us.”
James L. Ferrell, The Peacegiver: How Christ Offers to Heal Our Hearts and Homes
“Righteousness is simply a humble understanding of how unrighteous one is coupled with a deep commitment to become better.”
James L. Ferrell, The Peacegiver: How Christ Offers to Heal Our Hearts and Homes
“As Michael pondered how shallow he had been, he was struck by another thought. It wasn't simply that he hadn't gone deep enough. It was rather that he had grown accustomed to wading in pools that had no depth to begin with. A turn toward holiness would be a turn toward a different life altogether - to a life where different things mattered than had mattered in the past. Did he desire such a life? He knew that of all the questions, this was the most important.”
James L. Ferrell, The Holy Secret
“I believe that the scriptures, the Sabbath, and the temple [are] mediums of holiness extended into this unholy world.”
James L. Ferrell, The Holy Secret
“Anything that makes me feel better (or worse) than another is darkness; anything that makes me feel one with others is divine. So the natural instinct to try to lift others by helping them to feel good about themselves relative to others is exactly the wrong way to help. True happiness is found not in a belief that I am better but in the obliteration of any need to be.”
James L. Ferrell, Falling to Heaven: The Surprising Path to Happiness
“The Lord's Atonement and Mercy 1. We are each of us sinners, entitled to nothing but hell and therefore utterly and equally dependent upon the mercies of the Lord. (Jonah) 2. I can receive of the Lord's mercy—and the happiness, healing, and peace that attend it—only to the extent I extend the same to others. (Jonah) 3. The Lord mercifully removes any justification for failing to extend mercy to others. (Abigail) a. For the Lord has taken the sins of others upon his own head and personally atoned for them. (Abigail) b. What possible justification could there be for demanding more for others' sins than the Lord has given? (Abigail) 4. I can recover mercy by remembering (a) Abigail's offering, (b) the Lord's question to Jonah, and (c) my own sins, the memory of which brings me to the Lord and invites me to rediscover his mercy and peace. 5. If I repent of failing to extend mercy, the Lord will supply me with everything I need and more—he will grant me his love, his companionship, his understanding, his support. He will make my burdens light. (Abigail)”
