Lifelong Learning

Gather Knowledge

How many of the things we own come with a lifetime warranty? Maybe a nice set of knives, a kitchen table, or a toolset if we are lucky. Now, which of our possessions has an eternal warranty? Joseph Smith taught that "whatever principle of intelligence we attain in this life, it will rise with us in the resurrection," meaning the things we learn now will stay with us, and benefit us, even after our mortal lives end (Doctrine and Covenants 130:18). God expects all of us to gather as much knowledge as we are able—at school, at work and on our own. Doing so will help us through the challenges of this life, bring us closer to Him and prepare us for the life to come.
