BYU-Idaho students urged to be lovers of truth

He read Doctrine and Covenants 93:28,
"He that keepeth his commandments receiveth truth and light, until he is glorified in truth and knoweth all things." Throughout our lives we can increase in knowledge of the truth if we will keep the commandments, he said. He pointed out how a child reacts when corrected for doing something wrong. They may accuse the parent of yelling at them even if the parent is speaking with a calm voice. If the truth clashes with our behavior or some of our strong personal beliefs, we may not want to hear it, he said. To a guilty person the truth seems harsh.
(Paul Johnson, BYU-Idaho)

Read all of it; it's good stuff.
