What does the word worthiness mean to you? Does it bring to mind judgment, guilt, comparison, constraints, and feelings of “I don’t quite measure up”? Do these feelings seem inconsistent with the grand truth that God’s love for each of His children is infinite and unending? The concepts of worth, worthy behavior, and ultimate worthiness have significant differences, but each plays an important role in our eternal progression. In this thought-provoking message, Virginia Hinckley Pearce shares four stories that help us understand our relationship with God as we strive to become more like Him.
This Bookshelf Single is an excerpt from the book Rise to the Divinity within You: Talks from the 2006 BYU Women’s Conference.
