My favorite scripture is 2 Nephi 31:20. I'd never thought much about it until it was the theme scripture for the year I worked at Brighton. Something about it, though, just sort of stuck with me.
Anyway, I haven't really been where I need to be spiritually, lately. For whatever reason it's the simple things like scripture reading, prayer, etc, that seem to fall by the wayside when life picks up speed.
However, this week has reminded me of this scripture. I love the if/then pattern of it's set up:
If I do the following things:
~Press forward with a steadfastness in Christ
~Have a perfect brightness of hope
~Have a love of God
~Have a love of all men
~Feast upon the word of Christ
~Endure to the end
Then I will have eternal life.
Seems easy enough, right? You would think so...
