Looking For Elder Holland Quotation


Recommended Posts

There is somewhere a quotation from I believe Elder Holland that says that God or Christ feel pained or troubled or something like that when we don't trust them or come to them in our time of need, any help?

Sounds like something he would say, so I'll look.

Not quite what you were asking, but this is the talk I was thinking of.


If this isn't it, I'll keep looking.

um...keep looking! haha! it's something he would feel bad if his children didn't think he as a parent was someone they could take their troubles to and he would feel bad if the Saviour felt that same way that we thought he wouldn't understand-something to that effect

Found it!!

" I can tell you this as a parent: as concerned as I would be if somewhere in their lives one of my children were seriously troubled or unhappy or disobedient, nevertheless I would be infinitely more devastated if I felt that at such a time that child could not trust me to help or thought his or her interest was unimportant to me or unsafe in my care. In that same spirit, I am convinced that none of us can appreciate how deeply it wounds the loving heart of the Savior of the world when he finds that his people do not feel confident in his care or secure in his hands or trust in his commandments."


silly billy thing is is I vividly recall watching this CES Fireside in 1997 and I own the VHS copy of it, I knew I knew it...
