‘Something for Nothing’ Does Not Work – George Albert Smith, Oct 1950

George Albert Smith (1870-1951)

CALLED UNTO LIBERTY, 20th CENTURY SERMONS, GEORGE ALBERT SMITH

OCTOBER 1950

Most of the nations are losing the liberties they have had because they have not kept the commandments of the Lord.

Most of the difficulty is the bid that is made by the leadership of nations to people that if they will follow the plan that the leaders map out, they will be fed and clothed without having to work so hard for it, but it does not work. People are being misled with the idea that they can get something for nothing and are not encouraged to work for what they need and desire.
