How we live our lives minute by minute, hour by hour, and day by day is a reflection of our faith and beliefs…..Matthew 22:38 says, And He said to him, “‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND”. How we show that love is reflected in the actions and choices we make everyday. These usually involve how we live the 2nd commandment and the way we love those around us. I am convinced without any doubt that if the world adopted only these 2 commandments, we would live in a world of peach, happiness, and joy. Why then is it so hard for us to hold true to these commandments? Selfishness is almost always the answer. And yet by CHOOSING what we think is best for ourselves we are met with unmet expectations and misery. True happiness always comes from serving others and putting others first, with our Savior, Jesus Christ being #1. Go ahead and test my words. For 1 week think of others FIRST… When the temptation comes to be SELFISH, STOP and do for others. If you are not happier and more fulfilled after 1 week then go back to your SELFISH ways of the past. True principles never die and can always be proven by adhering to them. Start being happier today by living the first and great commandment.
