Higher Ground

"In addition to ... spiritual self-reliance ..., there is temporal self-reliance, which includes getting a postsecondary 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, "Coming to Ourselves", April 2012, General Conference
