    Joseph F. Smith on Wealth

    In an 1889 meeting with young men and young women from Cache Valley, Joseph F. Smith shared his perspective on wealth: “I have always prayed and pray now that the Lord shall not give me sufficient riches to control me, but give me enough so that I may control them.”
