>The final outcome
And purpose of life
Is to become
Like Jesus Christ

Our measure of stature
Must be in fulness
The changing of nature
Is ever a process

Awakened
Rebuked
Chastened
Refined

We struggle in labor
For strength to survive
Then through our deliverer
We are sanctified

The burden once heavy
Becomes light to bear
The experience heavenly
Through faith, made aware

“As Many as I Love, I Rebuke and Chasten”
Elder D. Todd Christofferson
Ensign, May 2011

“Nevertheless the Lord seeth fit to chasten his people; yea, he trieth their patience and their faith.

“Nevertheless—whosoever putteth his trust in him the same shall be lifted up at the last day. Yea, and thus it was with this people” (Mosiah 23:21–22).
