"One cannot help but wonder how many gifts and blessings surround us that we do not receive. The Lord has said: 'For what doth it profit a man if a gift is bestowed upon him, and he receive not the gift? Behold, he rejoices not in that which is given unto him, neither rejoices in him who is the giver of the gift' (D&C 88:33).

"In our Church meetings, in our personal and family scripture study, and even this day as we listen to the Lord's prophets and apostles, some of us will receive more than others. Why? I am learning that those who truly receive do at least three things that others may not do.

"First, they seek....

"Second, those who receive, feel....

"Third, those who receive by the Spirit intend to act." - A. Roger Merrill, "Receiving By The Spirit," Ensign, November 2006
