Doctrine and Covenants 50:22-24

"Wherefore, he that preacheth and he that receiveth, understand one another, and both are edified and rejoice together.
And that which doth not edify is not of God, and is darkness.
That which is of God is light; and he that receiveth light, and continueth in God, receiveth more light; and that light groweth brighter and brighter until the perfect day."
Doctrine and Covenants 50:22-24

This is from a section where some people were "speaking in tongues" that nobody could understand, and God is explaining that the spirit they were experiencing during that wasn't of him... he's about truth and clarity, and not confusion and secrecy.  We can't handle knowing everything that God knows (just like children have to be taught little by little), but as we are able to understand it, he helps us grasp it.  He wants EVERYONE to know, to understand, and to be edified and happy. :)  The light/dark thing is cool.  Sometimes it is hard to see or find our way in the dark, and as we gain more and more light, we are able to see more and more clearly.  Sometimes I think that this whole world is kind of shadowy and unclear, and as we learn and grow and get more and more light, we'll be able to see better our purpose here, and how little some things matter.
I also absolutely love the idea of a perfect day. :)  That someday we'll be there, and everything will be perfect.  Really looking forward to that one. :)  Let's all have a party that day, okay?
