Becoming Something

In contrast to the institutions of the world, which teach us to know something, the gospel of Jesus Christ challenges us to become something…The gospel of Jesus Christ is the plan by which we can become what children of God are supposed to become. -Elder Dallin H. Oaks

It is a constant struggle for me to become what I know I can become. By living the gospel of Jesus Christ I know that each one of us can become something great.
