The Test, the Task, the Commandment

The great test in life is obedience to God. 
The great task of life is to learn the will of the Lord and then do it.
The great commandment of life is to love the Lord...
We must put God in the forefront of everything else in our lives...
When we put God first, all other things fall into their proper places or drop out of our lives. 
Our love of the Lord will govern the claims of our affection, the demands on our time, the interests we pursue, and the order of our priorities.
(Ezra Taft Benson "The Test, the Task, the Commandment" 1988)
