How can we better ourselves so that anger is not a part of us? We must first watch ourselves, as King Benjamin admonished. Said he, "But this much I can tell you, that if ye do not watch yourselves, and your thoughts, and your words, and your deeds, and observe the commandments of God . . . even unto the end of your lives, ye must perish. And now, O man, remember, and perish not. (Mosiah 4:30)" Earlier in his great oration, the great Nephite King warns, "And now, I say unto you, my brethren, that after ye have known and have been taught all these things, if ye should transgress and go contrary to that which has been spoken . . . the same cometh out in open rebellion against God; therefore he listeth to obey the evil spirit, and becometh an enemy to all righteousness; therefore, the Lord has no place in him, for He dwelleth not in unholy temples. (Mosiah 2:36-37)"
May we all control ourselves, and eventually master our own creature, that the Spirit of the Lord might dwell more fully with us, I pray. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
