The choices we make, however, determine to a large extent our happiness or our unhappiness, because we have to live with the consequences of our choices.
Making perfect choices all of the time is not possible. It just doesn’t happen. But it is possible to make good choices we can live with and grow from.
When God’s children live worthy of divine guidance they can become “free forever, knowing good from evil; to act for themselves and not to be acted upon.”
We are measured by possessions and wealth, physical appearance and dress styles, social status and achievements.
Too many of us strive to gain acceptance using these standards, trying to enhance the perception of our worth by those who are part of our lives as well as those who view us from afar.
If we are not careful, we can let others determine and establish our standards and feelings of self-worth. We can become someone else’s image of success rather than our own.
My dear friends, I worry that we often forget that each one of us is inherently of great worth because we are children of God. It is easy to forget if we listen to the voices of the world’s values that surround us.
We strengthen our sense of worth by being dignified in the lives we lead and by following the teachings of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
As we rely upon our Savior for guidance and His deep love for us in all we do, our feelings of personal worth will be expressed in the lives we lead, and we then bless others by our example and service. - Sharon G. Samuelson
