The message we shared a lot this week was on loving others as ourselves. This is a very hard thing to do but man is it a really important thing to do. We are supposed to love our God with all the energy of our soul which seems to be the easy part. The real test is loving others as ourselves because when we do so we are actually truly showing God that we love Him by loving all of His children. Don't get me wrong sometimes it is hard to love people, especially ones who may not like you but that is no excuse. We are required to love all men. Not wanting to love is a desire that Satan puts in our hearts. It is when we don't want to love, when we are angry, frustrated, and so forth it is then that we are in Satan's grasp. Trying to justify by saying things like "It's just me, this is who I am and I can't change. etc" is wrong because that isn't true. Actually we are naturally born sons and daughters of God, born to have joy. How are we supposed to be happy and have joy if we aren't loving others and being happy? Real joy comes from loving, being happy, and remembering where we come from and how we are children of God. I have came to know this more on my mission and continue to learn more of it each and every day. I still am not perfect at loving but I am trying which is the important thing. So let's all keep trying to love more and more each day.
