Doctrine and Covenants 76:20

"And we beheld the glory of the Son, on the right hand of the Father, and received of his fulness."
Doctrine and Covenants 76:20

I like this whole "fulness" thing. God is full and we are not... like God is complete and we aren't quite. :) Hmm... the best analogy I can think of on the spur of the moment is an insane asylum. The people in the asylum might be able to teach each other and help each other in interesting ways... but none of them can offer sanity because they don't have it. So it is with us. We can help each other in cool and interesting ways... but none of us can offer completeness, because we don't have it. If we know where to get it, then all we can offer is directions. :) Go down the hall, turn right, and there is the Psychiatrist's office... only in our case, we can help people to find Christ. The first step toward sanity is realizing that you don't have it. :) and maybe it is the same with fulness. If we think we have it all figured out, and that we have everything in life that we need, then we aren't going to find God. It is only after we realize our emptiness and incompleteness that we have a chance of correcting it... and then we still have to go to God, who is complete... if we go to other people for the answer, they won't have it, because they are incomplete themselves.
