Living more abundantly

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.  John 10:10

When we apply gospel principles in our lives, we can become more productive spiritually and temporally. The gospel teaches us to do our best to prepare for a successful future while enjoying the present. It teaches us to seek our Heavenly Father’s help to develop our potential so that we can contribute to the lives of others and be examples of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

The atonement of our Savior has given Him the power to help us become the person He knows we can become... if we are truly willing to follow the Spirit and become more like Him and ask for His help. Our spiritual growth must be complemented by our temporal progress. It is important for you to educate and train yourself in order to better
provide for your family and serve in the home, Church, and community. 

Many spiritual principles have temporal application, and our temporal lives often influence our ability to grow spiritually.  As we read and study our scriptures daily we learned and grow Spiritually and it helps to grow temporally as well.  So many lessons carry into our temporal lives and we become better for it. 

In our lives we will all face disasters.  Most will be personal but some will cover more.  Having a spiritual and temporal foundation will bless you and your family so that you will be able to weather the storms you will have to face as you go through life.
