If You Are Going To Shop…

“For you say I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see.” Revelation 3:18-19

“The gold here recommended as having been tried in the fire is faith and love…the white raiment (garment) is purity of character, the righteousness of Christ imparted to the sinner…the eyesalve is that wisdom and grace which enables us to discern between good and evil, and to detect sin under any guise. He says: ‘Buy of Me.'” Testimonies for the Church, vol. 4, pg. 88, 89
