treat carefully what you receive from Heaven

There is one principle that I do wish the people would observe, that is, do not ask God to give you knowledge, when you are confident that you will not keep and rightly improve upon that knowledge...Do not ask for revelations to dictate you in this, or the other, unless you are sure that you can obey them.  Do not suffer yourselves to falter in your faith, and to say that the door of revelation is closed, for I tell you that there are now too many for your good, unless you hearken more diligently than you have hereto, unless you apply more closely in your lives what is revealed and live your religion more faithfully.

Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses 3:338
