My 5 Favorite Scriptures

5. Revelation 7:17 "For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes." There have been many times in my life that I have truly needed and felt God wipe the tears from my eyes. This scripture is, to me, especially tender, and shows that God loves us like I love my own children.

4. 1 Nephi 3:7 "And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandment unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them. Whenever I feel that life is too hard, that I am too imperfect, or that the task ahead of me just seems unattainable, this scripture always brings me so much comfort. I know that if God commanded me to do something, I have the promised blessing of his assistance.

3. D&C 59:23 "But learn that he who doeth the works of righteousness shall receive his reward, even peace in this world, and eternal life in the world to come." A good friend of mine put it this way: "Be good and you'll be happy."

2. 2 Nephi 31:20 "Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life. This scripture somehow manages to sum up the purpose of life in a nutshell. 1. Press forward, 2. Have hope, 3. Love God and men, 4. Feast upon the Word, 5. Endure to the end, 6. Have eternal life. It's like a little formula for eternal happiness!

1. 3 Nephi 13:28-34 ". . . Consider the lilies of the field how they grow: they toil not, neither do they spin. And yet I say unto you, even Solomon, in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field,. . . even so will he clothe you, if ye are not of little faith. Therefore, take no thought, saying what shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal, shall we be clothed? For your Heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things, But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Take no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. . . " I like to call these verses the "Don't worry, be happy" scripture. To me, it means that God loves us so much that he doesn't want us to spend our whole lives worrying about the details, but rather seek after him, and allow him to bless us for our righteousness and faith. Not only will he bless us temporally, as the verses suggest, but he will also ensure our spiritual well-being, feeding us with the Bread of Life, quenching our thirst with Living Waters, and clothing us with the robes of Eternal Glory.
