Daily Thought -- May 19, 2011

"President Gordon B. Hinckley stated: 'I have not spoken face to face with all of the prophets of this dispensation. I was not acquainted with the Prophet Joseph Smith, nor did I ever hear him speak. [However,] my grandfather, who as a young man lived in Nauvoo, did hear him and testified of his divine calling as a great prophet of this dispensation' ("Believe His Prophets," Ensign, May 1992, 50).

"President Hinckley bore witness of the First Vision, when young Joseph Smith went to pray in a grove and received his answer through divine revelation from both the Father and the Son.

"President Hinckley's passion with the building of temples and the sacred work performed therein will be a polar star for each of us to follow."

-F. Michael Watson "His Servants, the Prophets," Ensign, May 2009, 108
