Not sure if I have used that title before.. but I liked it, so I
figured I would use it anyways!
This week we were blessed to help out with a lot of service projects!
It was a lot of fun. We were destroying a bathroom one day, and
cleaning out chicken coops the next! It was kind of cool to see some
real live chickens! It has been a while. I really appreciated the
chance to serve other people. It was a fun time!
We also had the chance to play volleyball with the ward! Some
investigators came to play with us, and it was a good fellow-shipping
activity for them. Plus I love volleyball, so it was a win-win!!
I don’t have a lot of time today, but I wanted to share something that
I learned in Gospel Principles! We were talking about sacrifice! The
teacher talked to us about the relationship between cost and
sacrifice. I will give you an example. The cost of an ice cream cone
may be $1. That cost is the same for everyone, regardless. BUT each
person sacrifices different amounts in order to earn that $1. Someone
may get paid $5 an hour compared to someone else who gets paid $10 an
hour. You see how one person may have to work harder to earn that $1,
and that means they sacrificed more. We all have to make sacrifices in
order to gain salvation. Each person’s level of sacrifice is
different. We can not judge what another person is sacrificing, or
trying to sacrifice. Only God knows our hearts (1 Samuel 16:7) and
what we go through as individuals when we work out our own salvation
(Phillipians 2:12). Try not to put others down, but lift them up as we
all try to return to live with God again!
Come what may, and Love it!
