Why should you be jealous because I choose to be kind? Quote by Jeffery R Holland

Sunday, May 20, 2012

Here is another one Miss A did today from another  great conference address.

This one was by Elder Jeffery R Holland, entitled "Laborers in the Vineyard".   He told a story in the scriptures of varies of laborers who were invited to work.  As the day went on more laborers were added at different time.  At the end of the day all were paid the same wage.  He went on to explain, that another's success does not take away from our own.  

He gave this quote that I loved, but honestly who wants a sign that says this: "Envy requires us to suffer all good fortune that befalls everyone we know! What a bright prospect that is—downing another quart of pickle juice every time anyone around you has a happy moment!"

Pickle juice--- what an vivid analogy.  Love it.  I also love this one which was more fitting for a sign,  "Why should you be jealous because I choose to be kind?"
