General Conference thoughts: Careful versus Casual

When I think of casual I think of casual Fridays.  They are a treat and we love them because we get to lower our normal office dress standard.  We get to go to work comfortable and who doesn’t appreciate being comfortable?

But when it comes to daily living and our actions it’s easy to see how comfortable can drop the bar quickly.  It’s like that old but effective example of the frogs and the boiling water. Put them in the boiling water and they jump out.  Put them in warm water and turn up the temperature by degrees and they stay in until it’s too late.

In our quest for comfortable we have let casual become the norm when we should remember our life’s purpose is to aim higher not settle for lower. It really is okay to strive for a higher standard.
