Choked with the Cares and Riches and Pleasures of Life

We are told in Luke that there would be a time when men would be choked with the cares and the riches and the pleasures of life [see Luke 8:14]. I have in my mind … even now, men and women that I love, whose very spirituality is being choked by these very things, and the adversary is leading them along that easy pathway of pleasure and they are neglecting their duty as parents and as members of the Church of Jesus Christ.
-George Albert Smith
(Teachings of Presidents of the Church: George Albert Smith, Chapter 22: Bringing Up Children in Light and Truth)
