Beloved childrenas fantasy novel written many years ago begins with sentence aIn Hole in the Ground there live hobbit. The story of Bilbo Baggins is about the most normal and unremarkable hobbit who is presented with the most remarkable opportunityiathe wonderful chance at adventure and the promise of great reward. The problem is that most self - respecting hobbits want nothing to do with adventures. Their lives are all about comfort. They enjoy eating six meals a day when they can get them and spend their days in their gardens, swapping tales with visitors, singing, playing musical instruments, and basking in the simple joys of life. However, when Bilbo is presented with the prospect of grand adventure, something surges deep within his heart. He understood from the outset that the journey would be challenging. Even dangerous. There is even a possibility he might not return. And yet, call to adventure has reached deep into His heart. And so, this unremarkable habit leaves comfort behind and enters the path to a great adventure that will take him all the way to there and back again. 2 Perhaps one of the reasons this story resonates with so many is because it is our story too. Long, long ago, even before we were born, in an age dimmed by time and clouds of memory, we too were invited to embark on an adventure. It was proposed by God, our Heavenly Father. Accepting this adventure would mean leaving the comfort and security of his immediate presence. It would mean coming to earth for a journey filled with unknown danger and trial. But we also know that we will gain precious treasures, including physical body and experiencing intense joys and sorrows of mortality. We would learn to strive, to seek, and to struggle. We would discover truths about God and ourselves. Of course, we know we will make many mistakes along the way. But we also had a promise: that because of the Great sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we could be cleansed of our transgressions, refined and purified in our spirits, and one day resurrect and reunite with those we love. We learn how much God loves us. He gives us life, and he wants us to succeed. Therefore, He prepared Savior for us. Nevertheless, our Father in Heaven say, athou mayest choose for thyself, for it is given unto thee. 3 there must have been parts of the mortal Adventure that worry and even terrify Godas children, since a large number of our spiritual brothers and sisters decide against it. 4 by gift and power of moral agency, we determine that the potential of what we could learn and eternally become was well worth the risk. 5 and so, trusting the promises and power of God and His Beloved Son, we accept challenge. We agree to leave the security of our first estate and embark on our own Great Adventure of there and back again.
