When I train myself to be disciplined in showing gratitude, the challenges and demands of daily life become quite bearable. I am not burdened down by the weight of those priorities. And it helps me maintain humility because I am not focused on what I have done - but I am focused on what Christ is able to do through me. The more I practice gratitude in everyday life - the more my Heavenly Father's kindness and generosity continues to strengthen me.
Our Invitation to Learn of the Savior
Since learning requires us to become humble, open and teachable, it also requires us to understand that it is a process. Hence the reason we don't just learn from the Savior - we do exactly what the Savior taught by applying it in our lives and living it out daily. Without application - we are not growing in spirit and truth. If we are not growing spiritually by applying Gospel principles into our own lives, we are not bearing any true fruit. And if we are not bearing any true fruit - we may find ourselves withering away with the cares, anxieties, and worries of this world.
