VIDEO: President Russell M. Nelson | Some trials are deeply private burdens no one else can see


Some trials are deeply private burdens no one else can see. Others are played out on the world stage. The armed conflict in eastern Europe is one of these.
I have been to Ukraine and Russia many times. I love those lands, the people, and their languages. I weep and pray for all who are affected by this conflict. The Church is doing all we can to help those who are suffering and struggling to survive. We invite everyone to continue to fast and pray for all the people being hurt by this calamity.
Any war is a horrifying violation of everything the Lord Jesus Christ taught and stands for.
None of us can control nations, or the actions of others, or even members of our own families. But we can each control ourselves.
My call today is to end the conflicts that are raging in your heart, your home, and your life.
Bury any and all inclinations to hurt others—whether those inclinations be a temper, a sharp tongue, or resentment for someone who has hurt you.
The Savior commanded us to turn the other cheek, to love our enemies, and to pray for those who despitefully use us.
It can be painfully difficult to let go of anger that feels so justified. It can seem impossible to forgive those whose destructive actions hurt the innocent. And yet, the Savior admonished us to “forgive all men” (Doctrine and Covenants 64:10).
We are followers of the Prince of Peace. Now more than ever, we need the peace only He can bring. How can we expect peace to exist in the world when we are not individually seeking peace and harmony?

I know what I’m suggesting is not easy. But followers of Jesus Christ should set the example for all the world to follow. I plead with you to do all you can to end personal conflicts that are currently raging in your hearts and in your lives. #GeneralConference

Temple recommend questions have been periodically clarified or adjusted to meet the needs and circumstances of God’s children. These current updates clarify, but do not change, worthiness requirements to enter a temple.
