Great Shall Be the Peace of Thy Children – Gordon B …04.06.19

The young men here tonight have received some wonderful counsel. I hope they have listened well and that their lives will be touched for good as a result.

I have chosen to speak to the fathers. You already know what I am going to talk about. Your wives have reminded you that this will be my subject tonight. I told them so at the Relief Society conference two weeks ago. I may say some of the same things to you that I said to them. I remind you that repetition is a law of learning.

Now, this is a subject which I take very seriously. It is a matter with which I am deeply concerned. I hope you will not take it lightly. It concerns the most precious asset you have. In terms of your happiness, in terms of the matters that make you proud or sad, nothingI repeat, nothingwill have so profound an effect on you as the way your children turn out.

You will either rejoice and boast of their accomplishments or you will weep, head in hands, bereft and forlorn, if they become a disappointment or an embarrassment to you.

Many of you are in this meeting with your sons. I compliment you most warmly. I also compliment them. Both of you are in the very best of company. I am so proud of so many of our youthboth boys and girls. They are bright. They are self-disciplined. They take the long view. They have their heads on straight. Tonight they are in the place where they ought to be. Some are singing in this choir. They are seated in congregations across the world. They are serving missions. They are struggling through school, forgoing present pleasures for future opportunities. I admire them. I love them. And so do you. They are our sons and daughters.

I hope, I pray, I plead that they will continue on the path they are now following.

But sad to say, I am confident there are some of our young men who have slipped and are slipping into the foggy swamp of immorality, drugs, pornography, and failure. I hope they are a minority among their peers, but even the loss of one is too many.

Fathers, you and their mothers have a responsibility you cannot escape. You are the fathers of your children. Your genetic pattern is forever etched in their genetic code.

While we are in this meeting, some of them, I am satisfied, are out cruising the town. They or their friends have cars to drive. In many cases their fathers bought them. They have handed them the keys and told them to have a good time.

They want to do something exciting. They think that wish is not satisfied with wholesome entertainment. They are drifters, looking to do something that will make them feel macho.

My officer friend told me recently of two young men in the backseat of a police car, handcuffs about their wrists. They had started out innocently enough that evening. Four of them in a car went about looking for excitement. They found it. Soon there was a fight. Then the police cars converged. The boys were detained and handcuffed.

These were good young men. They were not of the kind that go to the jailhouse periodically. The mother of one of them had said to him before he left home, Bad things happen after 11 oclock.

He had quickly learned the meaning of that statement. He was embarrassed. He was ashamed to face his mother.

I told the Relief Society of secret underground drug parties that go by the name of Rave. Here with flashing lights and noisy music, if it can be called that, young men and women dance and sway. They sell and buy drugs. The drugs are called Ecstasy. They are a derivative of methamphetamine. The dancers suck on babies pacifiers because the drug makes them grind their teeth. The hot music and the sultry dancing go on until 7:30 of a Sunday morning. What does it all lead to? Nowhere. It is a dead end.

Now there has developed another practice in this search for something new and different and riskier. They choke one another. Boys choke girls until they pass out. At a local school the other day a girl with a health problem was choked until she was unconscious. Only the speedy action of paramedics saved her life.

Are boys involved in such ridiculous practices aware of the fact that their prank may lead to a charge of manslaughter? If that should happen, their lives would be ruined forever.

If they want to get involved in pornography, they can do so very easily. They can pick up the phone and dial a number with which they are familiar. They can sit at a computer and revel in cyberspace filth.

I fear this may be going on in some of your homes. It is vicious. It is lewd and filthy. It is enticing and habit-forming. It will take a young man or woman down to destruction as surely as anything in this world. It is foul sleaze that makes its exploiters wealthy, its victims impoverished.

I regret to say that many fathers themselves like to hear the siren song of those who peddle filth. Some of them also work the Internet for that which is lewd and lascivious. If there be any man within the sound of my voice who is involved in this or who is moving in this direction, I plead with you to get it out of your life. Get away from it. Stay away from it. Otherwise it will become an obsession. It will destroy your home life. It will destroy your marriage. It will take the good and beautiful out of your family relationships and replace these with ugliness and suspicion.

To you young men, and to the young women who are your associates, I plead with you not to befoul your minds with this ugly and vicious stuff. It is designed to titillate you, to absorb you into its net. It will take the beautiful out of your life. It will lead you into the dark and ugly.

A recent magazine article contains the story of a 12-year-old girl who got hooked on the Internet. In a chat room she met an admirer. One thing led to another until the discussion became sexually explicit. As she conversed with him, she thought he was a boy of about her own age.

When she met him, she found a tall, overweight gray-haired man. He was a vicious predator, a scheming pedophile. Her mother, with the help of the FBI, saved her from what might have been a tragedy of the worst kind (see Stephanie Mansfield, The Avengers Online, Readers Digest, Jan. 2000, 100104).

Our youth find this tempting stuff all about them. They need the help of their parents in resisting it. They need a tremendous amount of self-control. They need the strength of good friends. They need prayer to fortify them against this flood tide of filth.

The problem of parental direction of sons and daughters is not new. It is perhaps more acute than it has ever been, but every generation has faced some aspect of it.

In 1833 the Lord Himself rebuked Joseph Smith and his counselors and the Presiding Bishop. To the Prophet Joseph He said in language clear and unmistakable, as He had said to others:

You have not kept the commandments, and must needs stand rebuked before the Lord;

Your family must needs repent and forsake some things, and give more earnest heed unto your sayings, or be removed out of their place (D&C 93:4748).

Specifically what brought about these rebukes, I do not know. But I do know that the situation was serious enough and its future fraught with sufficient danger for the Lord Himself to speak with clarity and warning.

I think He likewise speaks to us with clarity and warning. My heart reaches out to our youth, who in many cases must walk a very lonely road. They find themselves in the midst of these evils. I hope they can share their burden with you, their fathers and mothers. I hope that you will listen, that you will be patient and understanding, that you will draw them to you and comfort and sustain them in their loneliness. Pray for direction. Pray for patience. Pray for the strength to love even though the offense may have been serious. Pray for understanding and kindness and, above all, for wisdom and inspiration.

I believe this to be the most marvelous age in all the history of the world. For some reason you and I have been permitted to come on the scene at this time when there is such a great flowering of knowledge. What a tragedy it is, what a bleak and terrible thing to witness a son or daughter on whom you counted so much walk the tortuous path that leads down to hell. On the other hand, what a glorious and beautiful thing it is to see the child of your dreams walk with head up, standing tall, unafraid, and with confidence, taking advantage of the tremendous opportunities that open around him or her. Isaiah said, All thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children (Isa. 54:13).

So lead your sons and daughters, so guide and direct them from the time they are very small, so teach them in the ways of the Lord, that peace will be their companion throughout life.

I mentioned to the Relief Society women several specific things that they ought to teach their sons and daughters. I repeat them briefly, perhaps in different language.

The first is to encourage them to develop good friendships. Every boy or girl longs for friends. No one wishes to walk alone. The warmth, the comfort, the camaraderie of a friend mean everything to a boy or girl. That friend can be either an influence for good or an influence for evil. The street gangs which are so vicious are an example of friendships gone afoul. Conversely, the association of young people in church and their mingling in school with those of their own kind will lead them to do well and to excel in their endeavors. Open your homes to the friends of your children. If you find they have big appetites, close your eyes and let them eat. Make your childrens friends your friends.

Teach them the importance of education. The Lord has enjoined upon this people the responsibility to train their minds that they may be equipped to serve in the society of which they will become a part. The Church will be blessed by reason of their excellence. Furthermore, they will be amply rewarded for the effort they make.

I read from a clipping I made the other day: The latest Census information indicated the annual wage for someone without a degree and no high school diploma stood at little more than $16,000 nationally [in 1997]. The jump wasnt much higher for a high school diploma$22,895 annual average income. As the level of education increases, however, so does the span. The holder of a bachelors degree earned, on average, $40,478 that year. Finally, the holder of an advanced degree typically bumped up their annual earnings by more than $20,000 to a nationwide average of $63,229, according to [these] Census figures (Nicole A. Bonham, Does an Advanced Degree Pay Off? Utah Business, Sept. 2000, 37).

Teach your children self-respect. Teach them that their bodies are the creation of the Almighty. What a miraculous, wonderful, and beautiful thing is the human body.

As has been said here tonight, Paul, in writing to the Corinthians, declared: Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are (1 Cor. 3:1617).

Now comes the craze of tattooing ones body. I cannot understand why any young manor young woman, for that matterwould wish to undergo the painful process of disfiguring the skin with various multicolored representations of people, animals, and various symbols. With tattoos, the process is permanent, unless there is another painful and costly undertaking to remove it. Fathers, caution your sons against having their bodies tattooed. They may resist your talk now, but the time will come when they will thank you. A tattoo is graffiti on the temple of the body.

Likewise the piercing of the body for multiple rings in the ears, in the nose, even in the tongue. Can they possibly think that is beautiful? It is a passing fancy, but its effects can be permanent. Some have gone to such extremes that the ring had to be removed by surgery. The First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve have declared that we discourage tattoos and also the piercing of the body for other than medical purposes. We do not, however, take any position on the minimal piercing of the ears by women for one pair of earringsone pair.

Teach them to stay away from drugs. Thats been spoken of eloquently here. I have already spoken about Ecstasy. Do you wish your children to have the peace of which Isaiah spoke? They will not know peace if they get involved with drugs. These illegal substances will take away their self-control, will seize upon them to a point where they will do anything, within or outside the law, to get another dose.

Teach them the virtue of honesty. There is no substitute under the heavens for the man or woman, the boy or girl who is honest. No false words besmirch his or her reputation. No act of duplicity colors his or her conscience. He or she can walk with head high, standing above the crowd of lesser folk who constantly indulge in lying, cheating, and who excuse themselves with statements that a little lying hurts no one. It does hurt, because small lying leads to large lying, and the prisons of the nation are the best proof of that fact.

Teach them to be virtuous. There is no peace to be had through sexual impurity. Our Heavenly Father placed within us the desires that make us attractive to one another, boys and girls, men and women. But with that urge must be self-discipline, rigid and strong and unbending.

Teach them to look forward to the time when they may be married in the house of the Lord as those who come to the altar free from taint or evil of any kind. They will be grateful all of the days of their lives that they were married in the temple, worthily, under the authority of the holy priesthood.

Parenthetically, a word to you men.

Watch the tides of your lives that you do not become enmeshed in situations which lead to sorrow, regret, and, eventually, divorce. Divorce has become so common all around us. There are so many who violate the solemn covenants they have made before God in His holy house.

Brigham Young once said: When people are married, instead of trying to get rid of each other, reflect that you have made your choice, and strive to honor and keep it, do not manifest that you have acted unwisely and say that you have made a bad choice, nor let any body know that you think you have. You made your choice, stick to it, and strive to comfort and assist each other (Deseret News, 29 May 1861, 98).

A divorce, when all is said and done, represents a failed marriage.

So many men become chronic critics. Rather, if they would look for the virtues in their wives instead of looking for their failings, love would bloom and the home would be secure.

Teach your children to pray. There is no other resource to compare with prayer. To think that each of us may approach our Father in Heaven, who is the great God of the universe, for individual help and guidance, for strength and faith, is a miracle in and of itself. We come to Him by invitation. Let us not shun the opportunity which He has afforded us.

God bless you, dear fathers. May He bless you with wisdom and judgment, with understanding, with self-discipline and self-control, with faith and kindness and love. And may He bless the sons and daughters who have come into your homes, that yours may be a fortifying, strengthening, guiding hand as they walk the treacherous path of life. As the years passand they will pass ever so quicklymay you know that peace which passeth all understanding (Philip. 4:7) as you look upon your sons and daughters, who likewise have known that sacred and wonderful peace. Such is my humble prayer, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.

Tattoos: Understand risks and precautions

Tattoos might be more common than ever, but don't take the risks lightly. Understand basic safety precautions and aftercare.

You could be the proud owner of a new tattoo in a matter of hours but don't let the ease of the process stop you from thinking carefully about permanent body art. Before you get a tattoo, make sure you know what's involved and how to reduce the possible risks.

A tattoo is a permanent mark or design made on your skin with pigments inserted through pricks into the skin's top layer. Typically, the tattoo artist uses a hand-held machine that acts much like a sewing machine, with one or more needles piercing the skin repeatedly. With every puncture, the needles insert tiny ink droplets.

The process which is done without anesthetics causes a small amount of bleeding and slight to potentially significant pain.

Tattoos breach the skin, which means that skin infections and other complications are possible, including:

Medication or other treatment might be needed if you experience an allergic reaction to the tattoo ink or you develop an infection or other skin problem near a tattoo.

Before you get a tattoo, think carefully about it. If you're unsure or worried that you might regret it, give it more time. Don't allow yourself to be pressured into getting a tattoo, and don't get a tattoo if you're under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Choose the location of the tattoo carefully. Consider whether you want the option to hide your tattoo under clothing. Also remember that weight gain including pregnancy weight gain might distort the tattoo or affect its appearance.

To make sure your tattoo will be applied safely, ask these questions:

How you care for your new tattoo depends on the type and extent of work done. Typically, however, you'll need to:

If you think your tattoo might be infected or you're concerned that your tattoo isn't healing properly, contact your doctor. If your tattoo isn't what you expected and you're interested in tattoo removal, ask your dermatologist about laser surgery or other options for tattoo removal.

This bug and heart combo is so adorable! We just love the subtle colour variations, the shading and the fact that the design is truly original. This is a tattoo you will be proud of forever!

Hearts have always been a popular choice for tattoos among girls, but these days girls are choosing hearts that arent quite so frilly or frothy as they have been in the past. Ornate heart tattoos like Celtic hearts are falling out of favor with girls. Tiny solid black hearts in pairs or alone are an artsy choice for girls who want heart tattoos. A tiny pair of hearts could represent a friend or a spouse. Sometimes friends will get matching tiny heart tattoos to cement a lifelong friendship. Small and simple heart tattoos are a great choice for anyone who wants a timeless tattoo that will still look fantastic many years from now.

Getting a name tattoo might be considered brave but why not just go for it? If you have a name of a special person in your life, there is no greater dedication then getting it inked on your skin as a permanent reminder of them!

Words can look great if you choose the right font and something that means something to you. They can be a significant or random as you like, get it right and you will be so pleased with your new ink, we are sure of that!

This tattoo is super cute, we love the spacing between the letters, and the dreamy font too! The flirty placement makes it extra cool, and one that you will love forever.

Getting just a word or a short phrase that is meaningful or inspirational as a tattoo has become very popular among girls. After seeing some heavy hitting Hollywood stars get tattoos with special words or phrases many other girls are doing it too. The words or phrases are smart tattoos to get because forever they will be reminders of a particular time, a particular choice, or a particular inspiration that affected that persons life. Small word and phrase tattoos are easy to hide when necessary and can be a secret reminder of strength, resiliency, and forgiveness.

An intricate or unusual ring design can look fantastic, we love the detailed pattern of this cool ring design, and the flash of colour makes it really special too.

These unusual designs look amazing, we love the shapes that the bold, black lines have created -very cool indeed.

I don't want to be shy

Can't stand it anymore

I just want to say 'Hi'

To the one I love

Cherry blossom girl

I feel sick all day long

From not being with you

I just want to go out

Ever night for a while

Cherry blossom girl

Tell me why can't it be true

I never talk to you

People say that I should

I can pray everyday

For the moment to come

Cherry blossom girl

I just want to be sure

When I will come to you

When the time will be gone

You will be by my side

Top 100 Best Sleeve Tattoos For Men – Next Luxury03.25.19

Theres no doubt about it, tattoo sleeves are being more widely accepted among society.

As a professional, covering them up is easy, and chances are youll be wearing a dress shirt at work anyways.

But speaking of work, sleeves can cost a pretty penny; so get ready to save on up.

A good tattoo artist will charge $1,500 $7,000 for one. While an artist with a wait list, that can often go beyond two plus years, can cost $14,000 and upwards. Just keep in mind when it comes to tattoos, price shouldnt be a focus point.

Figuring out what you want done should be your main concern. Do you want a half arm sleeve or full arm sleeve? Tribal, skull, rose, dragon, etc? The designs and ideas you can run with are endless. And truth be told, even angel, flower and religious tattoos on men can look masculine and downright manly.

In this guide of the top 100 best sleeve tattoos for men, Im going to show you all sorts of cool themes that are sure to impress. The talent and creativity is remarkable, but so is the time and amount of dedication. Most of these designs have required twenty plus hours minimum to finish.

And if youre wondering how long the process takes or the best what to plan things out.. Consider doing 3 hour sittings at a time, going back every 2 and a half weeks. It will extend the timeline a bit longer but remember, this is permanent, dont rush the process.

The pain varies among gentlemen, with typically the inner bicep, wrist and elbow being the worst spots. But in all honesty, if you want a sleeve bad enough, youll figure out how to put up with it.

Ariana Grande transforms her Pete Davidson ‘always’ tattoo …03.18.19

Comedian Pete Davidson and British actress Kate Beckinsale were packing on the PDA at a New York Rangers game. USA TODAY

Ariana Grande celebrated the kickoff of her Sweetener world tour, which begins Monday night in Albany, with a new modification to one of her old tattoos.

The original tattoo was the word "always," written in script.Grande got the word inked on her ribcage in June, prior to her breakup with Pete Davidson. Fans speculated at the time that the tattoo was Davidson's handwriting.

Grande shared a photo of her new ink on Instagram early Sunday morning, showing a leafy branch surrounding her original "always" tat.

"post run thrus, 3 am with @girlknewyork :)," she wrote, tagging the tattoo artist Mira Mariah, who has inked several other designs on Grande in the past. "not a cover up just evolvin also, our show opens tomorrow. i love u and im so grateful. see u soon."

According to Page Six, Grande reportedly got as many assix Davidson-inspired tattoos during the couple's brief time together. Since their split last October, fans have noticed that she's covered up several, including her "reborn" tat she got with her ex, which she replaced with a fern.

Meanwhile, Davidson has similarly modified the collection of Grande tattoos on his own skin. He recently had a black heart drawn over of the"Dangerous Woman"-inspiredtattoohe got behind his ear to honor Grande. He also inked over a neck tattoo that read "mille tendresse" French for "a thousand tendernesses" with the word"CURSED."

Here's hoping the "SNL" star decides to wait a while before getting any Kate Beckinsale-inspired body art.

Tattoos and Your Mission – lds.org03.11.19

Not only are tattoos a defacement of your body, but getting one could affect your ability to go on a mission.

Imagine you are standing outside a beautiful white temple. Its walls and grounds are immaculate. On the lawn near the front door is a painter. He has displays of his art for all to see.

A few minutes later, you see this painter turn around, pull out cans of paint, and start to paint on the walls of the temple. His painting isnt ugly, but it just doesnt belong there. Do you say anything to him? Do you ask him to make his picture bigger and more colorful and offer to pay him for his work? Or do you say, You cant do that! This is a holy temple!?

What would you do if it were your temple? The Apostle Paul said, Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? For the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are (1 Cor. 3:1617).

A tattoo is graffiti on the temple of the body, said President Gordon B. Hinckley.1

Tattoos are permanent. They are not only physically damaging, but through disobedience to the voice of the prophets, choosing to get one causes spiritual damage also. On top of that, something you might not have thought about before is that having a tattoo will affect your application to be a missionary.

When Bobby Collins (name has been changed) sent his mission papers off, he was surprised that he did not get back a large white envelope containing his mission call. Instead, he received a letter from the Churchs Missionary Department asking about his tattoo.

When Bobby graduated from high school, he wasnt sure if he wanted to go on a mission. He moved away from home to work, and he liked the independence of not having his parents around all the time. At about the same time, his best friend and his cousin both got tattoos. That kind of lowered my guard, he says.

Bobby had always been good at art, so he designed his own tattoo. He knew tattoos were discouraged by the Church and that his mother wouldnt like it, and before he went to get it, he asked his brother what he thought about it. His brother had some good advice. He said, Life already gives us so many scars. Why would you want another one?

But Bobby had already made up his mind. Six weeks and 700 hard-earned dollars later, he had a huge tattoo all the way up one leg. It was really painful. It was bloody, he remembers. And getting one made it easier to think about getting more. He didnt get any more, but after strengthening his testimony of the gospel, he did decide he wanted to serve a mission.

As painful as getting his tattoo was, the pain of regret that Bobby felt was much worse. He was very worried about whether or not he would be able to serve a mission. He wanted to get the tattoo removed but couldnt afford to. He worried what his future spouse and children might think of it.

That letter from the Missionary Department scared me a lot, Bobby says. My biggest fear was that this one thing was going to hold me back from serving a mission.

Bobby had to do what the Missionary Department asks all missionary applicants who have tattoos to do. On his original application he told them a little about his tattoo. The letter he received later requested a few more details, including an explanation of when and why he got it and where it is located on the body as well as a description or photograph of it. He was also asked to describe how he felt about it.

When a missionary candidate with a tattoo applies, General Authorities review each case and decide whether that candidate will be allowed to serve a mission. Some cannot.

Bobby did receive his mission call. He is grateful to be a missionary and sorry that, now a representative of the Lords Church, he once decided to get a tattoo.

For some missionaries, having a tattoo means being assigned to serve in a place where their tattoo is either culturally accepted or to a colder climate where long sleeves, and tights for women, will cover their tattoos. A tattoo can limit not only where you can serve, but, depending on its content and your feelings about it, it could also determine whether you can serve at all.

I just hope people will follow President Hinckleys counsel, Bobby says. I know that he is a prophet of God. If he says its important, then its important.

Bobby has some counsel of his own too, the same counsel his brother gave him: Even though we can be forgiven through the Atonement, why do something else thats going to leave us scarred?

You are a child of God. Your body is His creation. Would you disfigure that creation with portrayals of people, animals, and words painted into your skin?

I promise you that the time will come, if you have tattoos, that you will regret your actions. They cannot be washed off. They are permanent. Only by an expensive and painful process can they be removed. If you are tattooed, then probably for the remainder of your life you will carry it with you. I believe the time will come when it will be an embarrassment to you. Avoid it. We, as your Brethren who love you, plead with you not to become so disrespectful of the body which the Lord has given you. President Gordon B. Hinckley, A Prophets Counsel and Prayer for Youth, Liahona, Apr. 2001, 37.

Inna Prokopenko is a registered nurse and licensed master aesthetician in Salt Lake City, Utah. She has attempted to remove many tattoos in her years of work. Here is some of what Inna has to say about tattoos:

For the Strength of Youth – Earl C. Tingey03.11.19

My dear brethren of the priesthood, how honored I am to be with you this evening. Four of my grandsons are in the Conference Center tonightCraig, Brent, Kendall, and Michael. I would like to speak to them and all Aaronic Priesthood bearers and invite others to listen.

In a message from the First Presidency, included in the For the Strength of Youth booklet, we read:

Our beloved young men , we have great confidence in you. You are choice spirits who have come forth in this day when the responsibilities and opportunities, as well as the temptations, are the greatest. You are at the beginning of your journey through this mortal life. Your Heavenly Father wants your life to be joyful and to lead you back into His presence. The decisions you make now will determine much of what will follow during your life and throughout eternity.1

You live in a world of great uncertainty. There are many voices. There are many paths. Not all lead to our Heavenly Father. How will you know to whom to listen or where to go?

The prophet Jacob answered these questions in the following scripture: The Spirit speaketh the truth and lieth not. Wherefore, it speaketh of things as they really are, and of things as they really will be.2

But what are things as they really are as referred to by Jacob? Elder Neal A. Maxwell, addressing this subject, has said:

Without the obedient response to things as they really are, there are the endless detours and the empty searches for another course of life. A course of life that is wrong now cannot and will not be proven right later on.

The gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ gives us many truths that there really is the living God; there really is the living Church; there really are living prophets; there really are living scriptures; and there really will be a resurrection with a judgment.3

There are certain truths, certain things as they really are, that are enforced by standardsmany of which can be measured. Lets look at several examples in athletics.

The cover of the March 2004 New Era shows a picture of Moroni Rubio of Mexico. Two years ago, at age 16, he took first place at the Central American Junior Championships in the 100-meter sprint. His current best time is 10.46 seconds.4 He would be timed by a stopwatch, which measures performance.

The mens world record for high jump is held by a Cuban athlete who jumped approximately 8 feet (2.4 m). Can you imagine jumping that high? High jumpers leap over a horizontal bar resting on two vertical poles. This bar represents a standard, a measure to meet or exceed.

Imagine holding a track meet where the runners are not measured by a stopwatch or where the high jumpers do not have a horizontal bar to measure their jumps.

In life, as in athletics, there are standards, or measured behavior. There are rights and wrongs. As priesthood holders, we do not high jump without a horizontal bar.

Unfortunately, we are seeing the removal of traditional standards of morality and behavior in todays world. The vernacular of today is anything goes. The world views time-honored standards as old-fashioned or out-of-date.

We belong to a church where adhering to standards is expected. Things that have always been wrong in the past are still wrong today. The Church does not modify standards of morality by adapting to changing customs or to the mores of the societies in which we live.

President Gordon B. Hinckley tells of an experience he had as a boy lying in the bed of an old farm wagon at night with his brother Sherman. They looked at the myriads of stars in the heavens, and took turns picking out familiar stars and tracing the Big Dipper, the handle and the cup, to find the North Star. President Hinckley said he was fascinated by the North Star. Regardless of the earths rotation, the North Star maintained its position in the heavens and never moved. He said: I recognized it as a constant in the midst of change. It was something that could always be counted on, something that was dependable, an anchor in what otherwise appeared to be a moving and unstable firmament.5

Noting the unwavering, absolute position of the North Star, one writer told the contrasting story of a young boy who became lost on a camping trip. When his father finally found him, his father asked if he had remembered to pick out something in the landscape that he could always see. This, his father said, would have helped him to fix a steady position. The boy said, I did.

What was it? the father asked.

That rabbit over there, the boy said.6

Young men of the Aaronic Priesthood, fix your gaze on the unchanging standards of the gospel and not on the moving rabbit.

In the For the Strength of Youth booklet, the following standards, among others, are like a North Star to you: choose friends with high standards, do not disfigure your body with tattoos or body piercings, avoid pornography, do not listen to music that contains offensive language, do not use profanity, date only those who have high standards, remain sexually pure, repent as necessary, be honest, keep the Sabbath day holy, pay tithing, keep the Word of Wisdom.7

A dozen years ago, in one of the countries of Africa, we had faithful members of the Church who had been meeting in their homes for several years. I went to that country to see if we could receive permission from the government to bring in missionaries and establish the Church. I met with a high-ranking government minister. He gave me 20 minutes to explain our position.

When I finished he said, I do not see where anything you have told me is any different from what is currently available in our country. I see no reason to approve your request to bring missionaries into our country.

He stood up to usher me out of his office. I was panic-stricken. I had failed. In a moment our meeting would be over. What could I do? I offered a silent prayer.

Then I had an inspired thought. I said to the minister, Sir, if you will give me five more minutes, I would like to share one other thought with you. Then I will leave. He kindly consented.

I reached for my wallet and removed this small For the Strength of Youth booklet, which I have always carried.

I said, This is a little booklet of standards we give all of the youth in our Church.

I then read some of the standards I have mentioned tonight. When I finished he said, You mean to tell me you expect the youth of your church to live these standards?

Yes, I replied, and they do.

That is amazing, he said. Could you send me some of these booklets so that I could distribute them to the youth of my church?

I replied, Yes, and I did.

Several months later we received official approval from the government of that country to come and establish the Church.

Young men, these standards you are privileged to keep are truly a pearl of great price. The world does not understand them. Many good people seek them. You have them.

The Prophet Joseph Smith received a revelation that establishes how we may know today which voices to listen towhat standards to follow. In this revelation, our time, or generation, was referred to as a time when men would see an overflowing scourge and a desolating sickness [would] cover the land.8

The Lord then gave the standard of safety that will protect faithful followers. He said, But my disciples shall stand in holy places, and shall not be moved.9

The Brethren of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are disciples who stand in holy places. They are not moved or swayed by changing times from what has been established as true in all prior generations. The standards of the Church are firm and true. They are for your safety and eternal security. When you commit to live them, you are measured against time-proven standards that are approved by God.

Now, my grandsons and dear brethren of the Aaronic Priesthood, you are in a race for life. It is not a brief sprint. It is more like a marathon.

You will be tested and proven against Gods established standards. You will be guided by the Spirit to help you know what to do.

We are almost the only organization left that has established, time-honored standards. Most others have succumbed to the culture of our world. How blessed we are to have living prophets.

May you be blessed as you keep the standards of the Church. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
