3 Nephi 13: 34

3 Nephi 13: 34: “Take therefore no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient is the day unto the evil thereof.” This is the child’s view of life. A child is perpetually in the “now” and does not regret yesterdays or plan tomorrows. It is all
