Overview

The scriptures are replete with admonition to seek earnestly, diligently, for the best gifts, to seek for knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. "No man can be saved in ignorance." "The glory of God is intelligence." President Joseph Fielding Smith has spent a lifetime pleading with the members of the Church to study, to pray, to gain an understanding of the scriptures and to develop a testimony of the divinity of the mission of Jesus Christ. He has labored tirelessly to disseminate information with a great desire that the members of the Church might become more enlightened as to the principles of the gospel. "The Lord has promised to reveal unto those who are diligently seeking him, all the mysteries of his kingdom," President Smith has said. "The fact that a person is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not insure his salvation. He has to keep himself in touch with these sacred principles and know and live them. . . . The gospel of Jesus Christ is not merely a code of laws, it is more than that. It requires a spirit of humility, of faith, and a prayerful disposition. . . . The fact remains that too many of us take our membership as a matter of course. We do not study. We do not attend to the ordinary duties the Lord requires of us, and therefore we do not have an abiding testimony of the truth." This compilation of President Smith's sermons and writings represents a companion volume to "Take Heed to Yourselves." It is felt that the two greatest messages of President Smith's life have been the necessity for repentance and the need to seek earnestly for knowledge and understanding of the saving principles of the gospel-a living testimony of the true message of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
