What has the Gospel taught you?

What has the Gospel taught you?
.
If there is one thing the Gospel of Jesus Christ has taught me, it’s never to give up. It’s to keep pursuing my goals and dreams. It’s to turn the other cheek and ignore the negative influences.
.
The Gospel has given me a sturdy platform to work from. Most of all, it has given me peace of mind. I don’t care what transpires during this lifetime. Of course, I want things to go my way, and I like to see my desires come to pass; however, it’s okay if none of it goes that way.
.
Why?
.
Well, because I know none of it is my will. The only thing that matters is the will of the Lord and if my goals are aligned with His. Otherwise, It’s doesn’t matter.
.
Do you think the Lord cares who wins the Presidental election, the Governor of your State, or who wins in the NCAA and NFL?
.
I care, but He doesn’t. Sure, those things will make me happy here in this life—That’s it!
.
What He does care about is you and I. He cares how we treat each other. He cares about our scripture study and personal prayer. He cares about our mental health and spiritual wellbeing.
.
God has always made it clear that it is our choice whether or not to obey. He knows our heart and He wants us to return to Him, and so as we seek His guidance, He shows us how to do just that. He is always trying to give us what we really, truly want. But it is always our choice.
.
If we seek His guidance, we will understand all the things I mentioned don’t matter to Him. His Gospel is what matters to Him. He wants us to study it and take His Son’s name upon us.
.
He wants us to hear Him. As we hear Jesus Christ, we will know that everything will be okay, and we can make it. He loves each of us. He wants us to get along and find Him together in all we do.
.
Don’t get wrapped up in the world. Embrace the Gospel and receive the fruit it bears.
.
The Gospel has taught me everything I need to know at this point in my life and it will only continue to teach me as the days go on.
.
Hear Him!
