Heavenly Father is able to accomplish these two great goals -- the immortality and eternal life of man -- because He is a God of creation and compassion. Creating and being compassionate are two objectives that contribute to our Heavenly Father's perfect happiness. Creating and being compassionate are two activities that we are His spirit children can and should emulate.
