"Let those be chosen that are worthy." (D&C 105:35)
I recently received an e-mail from Dona Hessling, a sister in the Dortmund Germany Stake. She notes problems in translating various words from English into German. Specifically, Sister Hessling has been "confronted with the word 'worthy.'" She notes, "We must be worthy to partake of the sacrament or be considered worthy to enter into the temple. Sometimes I have the feeling of having to be perfect before I am completely worthy." Sister Hessling wonders how to think about being worthy in connection with our efforts toward self-improvement.
