A Life Worth Living

In the October 2004 General Conference, President Monson suggested a “simple yet far-reaching formula to guide [us] in the choices of life”:

  1. Fill your minds with truth.
  2. Fill your hearts with love.
  3. Fill your lives with service.

The scriptures teach these three basis principles over and over again. We are to seek wisdom out of the best books, love our neighbors, and serve God and His children.

This simple formula, I imagine, takes a lifetime of practice. But within its three-fold directive lies the key to success, for as President Monson says:

By doing so, may we one day hear the plaudit from our Lord and Savior, “Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”

    Exactly…words to live by. Thanks for posting this, Connor.

    It’s so easy to get caught up in what it means to live the gospel, but it really is that simple.

    Nice post. I like how Elder Eyring in the last conference talked about being faithful one day at a time.
