The Temple we are building is not one of stone, cedar and gold. It is a living Temple made of living stones, built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, aligned with our chief cornerstone, Jesus Christ. As with the Temple of Haggai’s day, perhaps the working group most subject to discouragement is the leadership.


Just ask George Washington. He was constantly appealing to Congress for funds to carry out the Revolution. After they lost a few rounds, the motivation to fund the effort would flag. Then he would appeal to Congress or win a round and the funds would come. Traditionally, Washington is said to have written his resignation, but never turned it in. Richard Stockton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence actually signed an oath of allegiance to the British when he was in dire straights. Leading a cause does not exempt you from discouragement. It may subject you to it more acutely.


From Timothy Darling’s Sermon “A Promise of Glory”
