Thanks. Part of that has to do with my religious upbringing. There is a passage from our book, The Doctrine And Covenants, that says: Whatever principle of intelligence we attain unto in this life, it will rise with us in the resurrection. And if a person gains more knowledge and intelligence in this life through his diligence and obedience than another, he will have so much the advantage in the world to come.
