Our temptation is to look for heroism, significance, and success in noteworthy deeds and great accomplishments. But faith accepts that God is working out His plan–for the world and for eternity–one moment, one act, one life at a time.
Our finite wisdom in a mortal existence makes it hard to act with unnoticed integrity, to persevere without apparent results, to show courage when there is nothing to gain and no one to cheer the sacrifice. But by such integrity, perseverance, and courage among His people in a Church worldwide, God is changing the world.
No matter how obscure or insignificant the act, when we serve the purposes of the Savior, the glory of the Son of God shines in us with increasing glory because of His power that is at work in us.
