A series of seemingly small but incorrect choices can become those little soul-destroying termites that eat away at the foundations of our testimony until, before we are aware, we may be brought near to spiritual and moral destruction. In the similar way, small acts of kindness, the tiny deeds of Christian service, the silent but significant efforts to control our thoughts and feelings – these are the simple things that build character and shape human destiny everlastingly.
Is our journey sometimes impeded when we forget the importance of small and simple things? We need to have family and personal prayers; study the scriptures, particularly the Book of Mormon; hold family home evenings; follow the admonition of the Savior to love one another, and be thoughtful, kind, and gentle with family. Through these and other similar small and simple things, we have the promise that our lives will be filled with peace and joy. – Elder M Russell Ballard (Church News, Jul 6, 1996)
Warriors know that the little things add up.
