#BYUDevo: Adversity increases our capacity to be like Christ

Sterling Hilton, Department Chair of Educational Leadership and Foundations in the McKay School of Education, delivered the Devotional address Tuesday in the Marriott Center.

Hilton said remaining linked to Christ both in times of peace and tribulation will help them learn and become like the Savior. Here's an excerpt of what he said: 

"How we respond to our life conditions, whether in prosperity or tribulation, is what matters in mortality. Our pattern of choices determines the degree of promised glory that we are willing to receive from our loving Father."

"I believe that everyone experiences tribulation and that these tribulations are individually tailored to fit their circumstances and needs, their strengths and weaknesses."

"The purpose of our tribulation is not crushing, hopeless despair. The fruit of our suffering can be a bright hope. Remaining steadfast in Christ through our afflictions and adversity increases our capacity to see our promised end more clearly."
