Today is the best day to prepare for the Second Coming

Tomorrow in seminary we're discussing prophesies of Christ's Second Coming. 

Here is a great little video clip about now being the best time to prepare. 

My favorite quotes from this talk from Elder Oaks.
While we are powerless to alter the fact of the Second Coming and unable to know its exact time, we can accelerate our own preparation and try to influence the preparation of those around us. ...
What if the day of His coming were tomorrow? If we knew that we would meet the Lord tomorrow—through our premature death or through His unexpected coming—what would we do today? What confessions would we make? What practices would we discontinue? What accounts would we settle? What forgivenesses would we extend? What testimonies would we bear?
If we would do those things then, why not now? Why not seek peace while peace can be obtained? If our lamps of preparation are drawn down, let us start immediately to replenish them.
