Stop it!!!

I was quite inspired by President Uchtdorf's talk in General Conference.  I so love that man and his inspiring talks!!  I loved quite a few of the talks, but in pondering what next to pursue on this blog, I chose Pres. Uchtdorf's talk for several reasons.  Here is the part to which I refer:

This topic of judging others could actually be taught in a two-word sermon. When it comes to hating, gossiping, ignoring, ridiculing, holding grudges, or wanting to cause harm, please apply the following:
Stop it!

And here are the reasons:
1. I've been pondering for several years what it means that 'mens love will wax cold' in the last days, and if it applies to even faithful Christians in everyday life.

2. I see scriptural evidence that the insights in his talk speak of a spiritual decay in our current lives that needs to be corrected.

3. I personally have felt several instances in which I felt judged by people for undisclosed reasons and subsequent heartache.

4. There are some personal instances in my own experience where I have had a hard time forgiving a few people for perceived wrongs.

I won't disclose specifics, but I feel this "stop it" is a subject needed by many people in our day.  I hope to look to the scriptures to help me pursue my deeper understanding and pray to be lead by the Spirit in doing so.

So here is my start on this.  I will post specific thoughts later, as I am going to read a book to my son. =)  Until next time...
