Too often we bask in our comfortable complacency and rationalize that the ravages of war, economic disaster, famine, and earthquake cannot happen here. Those who believe this are either not acquainted with the revelations of the Lord, or they do not believe them. Those who smugly think these calamities will not happen, that they somehow will be set aside because of the righteousness of the Saints, are deceived and will rue the day they harbored such a delusion. - Ezra Taft Benson

Spiritual Gifts as a Shield

Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve taught that gifts of the Spirit "can lead us to God. They can shield us from the power of the adversary.  They can compensate for our inadequecies and repair our imperfections" 

Spiritual Gifts, Ensign, Sept. 1986
