When the power of God is on a man, he mows the earth as he goes, and gathers his sheaves continually, gathering around him kindred spirits. He cannot speak or pray without gathering spirits of his own kind. When I find my kindred spirit, a man or woman, who possesses the Spirit of the Lord, I am acquainted with that person, and feel as though we had been acquainted a long time ago. These are the men who will do good, and will never lack friends, for they will find them here and there already made, and they will prove friends indeed. My mission is to go and make more friends besides the ones I have at home, and gather up the wheat from among the tares, and search out Israel wherever they are.
--Brigham Young, October 9, 1853, Millennial Star 16:51.
As Jesus pointed out in Luke Ch 8:
19 ¶Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not come at him for the press.
20 And it was told him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee.
