Serious Discipleship

Elder Neal A. Maxwell explained Gospel topics in such a succinct, thought-provoking way. His words were always aligned in alliteration. I loved listening to him (still do).

Discipleship was often the subject, whether stated or implied, in many of Elder Maxwell's talks. One idea he shared about the requirements of discipleships has stayed with me; I re-read this quote often.

If we are serious about our discipleship, Jesus will eventually request each of us to do those very things which are most difficult for us to do. Sometimes the best people have the worst experiences, because they are the most ready to learn.
