Congratulatory Criticism

April 18th, 2017 by G.

There is something deeply difficult, deeply right, and deeply Mormon about being very pleased with what people are doing but encouraging them to do better still.

God bless all of you who are deeply engaged in this program. And if it isn’t quite up to par, bring it there, will you?—in every ward and branch and stake and mission. And let us come nearer to the accomplishment of what the Lord has given us to do.

-thus President Kimball.

I might say the same for all of you.  You can do better, but you guys are great.
