In backing off Facebook, I am giving more time to myself, my family and yes…my spirituality and faith. If you have followed me any length of time, you know that I am accepting of all and never push religion. However, in being honest about where I am at in life away from Facebook, here it is.
Today, among other things, I am preparing a talk for church tomorrow. My talk is based on VIRTUE. More specifically the last sentence of the 13th Article of Faith in my church. It goes:
“We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men, indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul. We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to e able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.”
Definitely not what the world is teaching us. I feel humble to be able to study and give a talk on this topic. I’m sure I have just as much, if not more, to learn from this than anyone who will be hearing the words I prepare.
These lessons and morals are important not just to us, but to teach our beautiful daughters and sons. To hope, to love, to do good…and to seek these things out.
