Will a Man Rob God?

So our big story this week!
Our little car, Gordito, was nearing his death mileage of 50,000 miles. So we have Gordito:
Our replacement minivan for the day:
And our brand new 2015 Toyota Corolla. In red. His name is Dante's Infierno.
And so, we have in our line-up...
Old Car, Used Car, Red Car, Robbed Car.
Oh yeah. 
We got robbed.
I don't leave anything in the car, but Hna Nyre had her wallet, GPS and flash drive stolen. also, some donated blinds in the trunk of our car were stolen as well. It was a pretty random thing to steal. And, of course, they tried to steal our radio but it is literally built in the car so they just succeeded in dismantling it. 

So in case you were wondering, yes, a man will rob God. Or at least his representatives.

In other news, I am now in Alma in my Atonement reading of the book of Mormon. And I just want to share a few quotes from the apostles on this subject:

"The atoning sacrifice was designed to motivate us, to draw us unto him, to lift us to higher ground, and ultimately to assist us in becoming as He is."
 -Tad R. Callister

"And we do not need to achieve some minimum level of capacity or goodness before God will help - divine aid can be ours every hour of every days, no matter where we are in the path to obedience." 
- D. Todd Christofferson 

"I repeat, save for the exception of the very few who defect to perdition, there is no habit, no addiction, no rebellion, no transgression, no apostasy, no crime exempted the promise of complete forgiveness. That is the promise of the Atonement of Christ." 
-Boyd K. Packer

Which leads to this: "the result of His sacrifice is to free us from the effects of sin, that all may have guilt erased and feel hope." 
-Boyd K. Packer

The Atonement is our Message. It is the point of all that we preach. Everything else is a tangent of the great atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

"Remember, Remember, that is is upon the rock of our Redeemer that we are built."

Have a blessed week!
