"It is not enought to behave reverently; we must feel in our hearts reverence for our Heavenly Father and our Lord, Jesus Christ. reverence flows from our admiration and respect for Deity. Those who are truly reverent are those who have paid the price to know the glory of the Father and His Son."
—L. Tom Perry, "Serve God Acceptably with Reverence and Godly Fear", Ensign and Liahona, November 1990
"'Sacred' means worthy of veneration and respect. By designating something as sacred, the Lord signals that it is of higher value and priority than other things. Sacred things are to be treated with more care, given greater deference, and regarded with deeper reverence. Sacred ranks high in the hierarchy of heavenly values."
