"In addition to spiritual self-reliance...there is temporal self-reliance,
which includes getting a post-secondary education or vocational training,
learning to work, and living within our means.
By avoiding debt and saving money now,
we are prepared for full-time Church service in the years to come.
The purpose of both temporal and spiritual self-reliance
is to get ourselves on higher ground so that we can lift others in need."
-Elder Robert D. Hales, Ensign, May 2012, pg. 36.
