Is the Savior more than a worry stone?
I think the question in the title is one that every disciple of the Master must ask themselves at one time or another. When I think of my Savior, I think of one who is active in comforting me, and who is actively interested in my welfare and improvement. A worry stone, or a similar object is passive, it takes our worries only in a psychological sense. As it can neither see, hear, nor has the power to act, the worries and troubles are never really transferred; we still carry them. The Savior, in contrast, wants to take our sorrows, trials, and difficulties upon himself. Once taken, they are truly gone, and though they be as scarlet, they are made as white as snow.
