Enduring Luxury

Posted on May 26, 2009 by


We had a speaker in our class last week who talked about how our sense of entitlement to luxuries is what will destroy this country’s economy. That is also a common theme in General Conference. President Monson, in 2006, taught, “avoid the philosophy that yesterday’s luxuries have become today’s necessities”.

On the other hand, many parents, myself included, hope to provide their children with a better life they had. Are these two principles in opposition to each other? What are the values that allow a nation to be sustainably prosperous?
