Adversity Will School Us

“If our hearts are right before God, adversity will school us, help us overcome our carnal nature, and nurture the divine spark within us. Were it not for adversity, we would not know to ‘choose the better part’ (“Father in Heaven, We Do Believe,” Hymns, no. 180).

Adversity helps us see where we need to repent, to bring into subjection baser instincts, to embrace righteousness and enjoy ‘peace of conscience’ (Mosiah 4:3).”
