Elder Neal A. Maxwell said: “An economic depression would be grim, but it would not change the reality of immortality. The inevitability of the second coming is not affected by the unpredictability of the stock market. … A case of cancer does not cancel the promises of the temple endowment. …"
“All that matters is gloriously intact. The promises are in place. It is up to us to perform.” (“Notwithstanding My Weakness,” Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1981, p. 57.)
Before teaching the parable of the rich man whose ground brought forth plentifully, Jesus said, “Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.” (Luke 12:15.)
“But learn that he who doeth the works of righteousness shall receive his reward, even peace in this world, and eternal life in the world to come.” (D&C 59:22–23.)
"From the refiner’s fire of economic difficulty may come eternal blessings which can help save families and exalt their members by their being united and strengthened."
