Heed Joseph Smith Before Choosing a President
Ryan Jenkins, Standard-Examiner
In the end it is nice to know that the “Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7). A thought each of should remember as we stand on the sidelines to this year’s presidential political parade. Sometime during, and at the end of the parade (early November) you and I will have to cast a vote.
I think many would admit that American’s are giddy in many ways when it comes to choosing a candidate. We can easily be swayed by performance and the flattery of words, by standing ovations and animated events. And so the importance to look upon the heart becomes difficult, but no less important.
