This week has also been really humbling for me. I was reading Mark 10:13-25; when a boy asked Christ how he could receive eternal life. Christ answered naming off some of the 10 commandments and the boy said he already obeys all of them. It then says that the Lord loved him, then said,"One thing thou lackest; go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast; and give it to the poor and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross and follow me." It then says that the boy was sad at that saying and went away and grieved for he had great possessions. The Lord then said,"It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." I have been thinking a lot of this passage and how much I am willing to give. Its so easy to let worldly possessions climb the scales of our priority. Now having my eyes opened to how little some people have, I now see what truly matters.
I love being a missionary! I love Honduras. Yo se que vive me señor! The church is true!
I LOVE this quote!
The Lord works from the inside out.
The world would take people out of the slums.
Christ would take the slums out of people and they would take themselves out of the slums.
The world would mold men by changing their environment.
Christ changes men, who then change their environment.
The world would shape human behavior,
but Christ can change human nature.
Ezra Taft Benson
