Whom Ye Will Serve

At the Thirty-Seventh Psalm, David wrote that one must depart from evil and do good. The latter is not possible without the former, and the Eighteenth of Ezekiel tells us why. If an evil man repents to do righteously, his evil will not be mentioned. If a righteous man turns to evil, his righteousness will not be remembered. Therefore, David observed that it is the man who departs from evil to do good who will dwell forevermore. The Savior taught much the same lesson, though in different terminology, when He said that no man could serve two masters; for either he would hate one and love the other or hold to one and despise the other. No man can serve God and mammon. Expressed differently again, Joshua said, “Choose you this day whom ye will serve.”
