our desires (Maxwell; Brigham Young)

Like it or not, therefore, reality requires that we acknowledge our responsibility for our desires.  Brothers and sisters, which do we really desire: God's plans for us or Satan's [plans for us]?  Righteous desires need to be relentless, therefore, because, said President Brigham Young "the men and women to desire to obtain seats in the Celestial Kingdom will find that they must battle every day."  Therefore, true Christian Soldiers are more than mere weekend warriors. 

Elder Neal A. Maxwell
