We Must Be Worthy to Enter the Temple, and as We Serve Therein, the Lord Blesses and Refines Us

Psalm 24:3–5

3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place?
4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

Elder Neal A. Maxwell wrote:

“Temples are designed not only to endow and to seal us but also to refine us.”
