Conference thoughts-Elder Maxwell’s final sermon

In his final sermon in General Conference, Elder Neal A. Maxwell gave some highly relevant advice:

4. Young or old, my priesthood brothers, be grateful for people in your lives who love you enough to correct you, to remind you of your standards and possibilities, even when you don’t want to be reminded.
A dear and now deceased friend said to me years ago when I had said something sardonic, “You could have gone all day without saying that.” His one-liner reproof was lovingly stated, illustrating how correction can be an act of affection.

It’s never too late for any of us to be reminded of our standards and possibilities and to correct the course we’re on when necessary.
