This month for my scripture study, I decided to focus on obedience. Coincidentally, this video was just released about obedience, conveniently on the day that I am supposed to blog :)
Particularly as I have gotten older and entered the workforce, I have routinely been asked how I appear to be so happy or calm. I know that the apparent peace in my life can largely be attributed to the fact that I try my best each day to be obedient to the commandments of God. This feeling cannot be replicated or duplicated by any other manner of living. Imagine if you were to keep all the commandments of God. What do you think the result would be? How do you think your life would change? I know the potential benefit obedience has in my life, and that is why I try to live each day with a renewed desire to be more obedient than before. Not because I'm an "good-two-shoes" or a "teacher's pet" (although I will say that being on the good side of authority figures is never a bad consequence of rule-keeping ;) ), but because of the way that it enhances my quality of life.
One of my favorite scriptures, from the time I was little, is found in the Book of Mormon. Alma 41:10 reads, "Do not suppose, because it has been spoken concerning restoration, that ye shall be restored from sin to happiness. Behold, I say unto you, wickedness never was happiness."
I know that God has give us guidelines to help us live our happiest life, because He is our Father and He loves us.
