But the arecords of the fathers, even the patriarchs, concerning the right of Priesthood, the Lord my God preserved in mine own hands; therefore a knowledge of the beginning of the creation, and also of the bplanets, and of the stars, as they were made known unto the fathers, have I kept even unto this day, and I shall endeavor to write some of these things upon this crecord, for the benefit of my posterity that shall come after me.
Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
For members of the Church, education is not just a good idea – it’s a commandment.
Education was important to Abraham. We know he taught about the planets and the stars – astronomy – when he was in Egypt. And he kept records for the benefit of posterity.
Today I am grateful for the ability to accomplish so much.
