A Promise for All Times

Welcome to Above Yourself, a blog about self-improvement and faith. If you're new here, you may want to subscribe in a reader or subscribe by email. Many of the topics here are related to my faith in Jesus Christ and Mormonism, but all are welcome to share their own beliefs. Thanks for visiting!

Although the news seems to be filled with promises of a recession and difficult times ahead, God’s promises for us aren’t tied to the value of the dollar or any other concept. Our blessings from him depend on our keeping His commandments. A verse from the second chapter of the Book of Mosiah in the Book of Mormon highlights that fact:

And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness. O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it. -Mosiah 2:41

    This is a good reminder. Thanks for the scripture; I hadn’t really thought about it in the way you put it before.
