Thought of the Day: Every Convert Should Have an Immediate Responsibility

-Every Convert Should Have an Immediate Responsibility

Every Convert Should Have an Immediate Responsibility

“Every convert who comes into this Church should have an immediate responsibility. It may be ever so small, but it will spell the difference in his life. … I cannot understand why converts aren’t given more responsibility immediately when they come into the Church. The tendency is to say, ‘They don’t know enough.’ Well, take a chance on them. Think of what a chance the Lord has taken on you. Give them something to do, be it ever so small, something that’s specific and by which they will grow. … You will not develop people in this Church unless you give them responsibility.” —President Gordon B. Hinckley
