living in a wheat and tares world

In a "wheat and tares" world, how unusually blessed faithful members are to have the precious and constant gift of the Holy Ghost with reminders of what is right and of the covenants we have made.  "For behold, ...the Holy Ghost...will show unto you all things what ye should do." (2 Nephi 32:5).  Whatever the decibels of decadence, these need not overwhelm the still, small voice!  Some of the best sermons we will ever hear will be thus prompted from the pulpit of memory--an audience of just one!

Neal A. Maxwell ("Behold, the Enemy is Combined"), Ensign, May 1993, p. 76
