Monday Morning Quote: Challenges & Joys

"God left the world unfinished 
for man to work his skill upon. 

He left the electricity in the cloud, 
the oil in the earth. 
He left the rivers unbridged 
and the forests unfelled and the cities unbuilt.

 God gives to man the challenges of raw materials, 
not the ease of finished things. 

He leaves the pictures unpainted 
and the music unsung and the problems unsolved, 
that man might know the joys and glories 
of creation." 

~Thomas S. Monson
