Doctrines improve behavior

Pondering during scripture study how to change patterns of behavior in myself, I reread this quote:

“True doctrine, understood, changes attitudes and behavior. The study of the doctrines of the gospel will improve behavior quicker than a study of behavior will improve behavior. Preoccupation with unworthy behavior can lead to unworthy behavior. That is why we stress so forcefully the study of the doctrines of the gospel.” (Pres. Boyd K. Packer)

True Doctrine

Later throughout the day, I heard HWN as focusing on this quote and other scripture helped me respond more skillfully to various situations :)

p.s. We had an indoor trick-or-treat in my office building today. Lots of fun to explore the decorations :)
