Our being edified at conference depends on us. It becomes necessary that we prepare our hearts to receive and profit by the suggestions that may be made by the speakers during the progress of the conference, which may be prompted by the Spirit of the Lord. I have thought, and still think, that our being edified does not so much depend upon the speaker as upon ourselves.
If you get asked to do something that would take place down the road (say you get asked to speak at a conference that’s a year away) and you wouldn’t want to do it if it were taking place next week, then don’t do it. This advice has helped me evaluate the opportunities that I truly want to dedicate my time to and those that I don’t.
