Notes for my writing

This blog is made up of notes on the gospel as found in the only true and living church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This includes notes that are either excerpts from or ideas for books I either have in draft or may yet write.

God proves us to know whether we will keep his commandments or no

God's words to the Israelites about their days in the wilderness could just as well be a statement to us about our own mortality.

Deuteronomy 8:2 And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.

Do we believe in a god who humbles us, and proves us, to know what is in our heart, whether we will keep his commandments or no?
