“Personally, I believe that the most practical way to protect one’s self and family against economic need is to make liberal contributions for the support of the Lord’s poor according to the law of the Gospel. I am not promising you riches, but I am telling you that this is the most practical way to protect yourself and families from actual need” (Marion G. Romney, A Practical Religion, BYU address, 13 June, 156).

“I desire to impress upon you the fact that it does not make any difference whether a man is a Priest or an Apostle, if he magnifies his calling. A Priest holds the key of ministering of angels. Never in my life, as an Apostle, as a Seventy, or, as an Elder, have I ever had more of the protection of the Lord than while holding the office of a Priest. The Lord revealed to me by visions, by revelations, and by the Holy Spirit, many things that lay before me” (Wilford Woodruff, Millennial Star, 53:629).
