Sober And Quick To Observe

When we were living in Aliso Viejo, our Stake President, Dan Hunter, explained to us that he was very impressed when Mormon said that he was told that he was a sober child and quick to observe (Mormon 1:2). I guess it impressed me when I heard this, since it has been more than six years since I heard my Stake President talk on this subject. I too would like to be described in that way.

What does it mean to be sober? Well, in the footnotes, there is the word ‘trustworthy’. I would like to be trustworthy, because then the Lord would trust me more with His bounteous blessings; and to me, being ‘quick to observe’ means that I would be most appreciative of those blessings that the Lord which would choose to bestow upon me. That would make me very happy.
