This is my father, a true follower of Christ and a man who loves his family with an amazing humble heart. I sat on his knee often as a child...and I miss him terribly.
When I miss him most, I think of these words...
"In the end, the number of prayers we say may contribute to our happiness, but the number of prayers we answer may be of even Greater importance." Deiter F. Uchtorf. That being said, what are the chances that the Lord has put into our lives the ability to bless for good the lives of thousands of his precious children? When I look at my fellow men, I can't help but think that of all the commandments my God has given me, the one that will always matter most to him is my compliance to his most amazing words, "As I have loved you, love one another." It's how you live and love that will set you apart as a true believer. Don't be fooled...prayer is one thing, but prayer with action...is a true sign of one who keeps the Faith. I believe in grace, but I also believe that "when ye have done it unto the least of these...ye have done it unto me." Done...is a verb.
There you go. Wake up and do something for your fellow men. God needs you to be His hands on earth.
