"I mention five things that we can learn from those last hours of the Savior’s life on earth that can help us to face our own trials.

"First, He sought not to do His will but only the will of His Father....

"Second, when we are faced with trials, we must learn to not complain or murmur....

"Third, when we face our challenges, we must seek greater help from God....

"Fourth, learn to serve and think of others even in our times of trial....

"Fifth, forgive others and do not seek to pass the blame of our situation to them." - James B. Martino, "All Things Work Together for Good," Ensign (CR) May 2010

Brothers and sisters, remember Nephi and the sons of Mosiah, who had spiritual experiences and then acted in faith so that answers came and their faithfulness grew. Contrast this with Laman and Lemuel, who doubted and murmured. Even though they sometimes acted in worthwhile ways, work without faith is dead. We must have faith with works to receive answers. - James B. Martino, “Turn to Him and Answers Will Come,” Ensign (CR) November 2015

As we pass through the trials of life, let us keep an eternal perspective, let us not complain, let us become even more prayerful, let us serve others, and let us forgive one another. As we do this, “all things [will] work together for good to [us] that love God.” I bear a solemn and certain witness that our Father loves us and He sent His Son to show and pave the way for us. He suffered, He died, and He was resurrected that we might live, and He desires that we “might have joy,” even in our trials of life.
– James B. Martino, “All Things Work Together for Good,” Ensign (CR) May 2010
