Teach ye Diligently and My Grace Shall Attend You

I lost my patience last week and felt a little discouraged, not enough to quit, but enough to stop sharing my experiences. I felt like it was all in vain, but I know the reason I have to go through this is to share my experience with others.

We watched the movie Rocky this weekend. It had been so long that I’d forgotten that he actually lost to Apollo Creed. I always thought he’d won, but he technically lost. He went the distance though. He was outmatched. He was a nobody taking on the heavyweight champion of the world. Rocky was satisfied with that.

I’m satisfied. I’m also being prompted to continue this blog and so I will.

Question

Which gospel principles do you find most helpful in providing you the general direction, guidelines, and wisdom you need as you try to make righteous decisions on a day-to-day basis?

Quote

Stated succinctly, a gospel principle is a doctrinally based guideline for the righteous exercise of moral agency. Principles derive from broader gospel truths and provide direction and standards as we press forward on the covenant path…
[For example] note how many crucial decisions and life experiences can be influenced by the principle of being willing to “let God prevail“: dating and marriage, gospel questions and concerns, temptation, personal grooming, what to watch and read, where to spend time, with whom to associate, and many, many more. President Nelson’s inspired [and simple principle] provides direction in every aspect of our lives and enables us to govern ourselves.
With all the energy of my soul, I invite all of us to learn, live, and love principles of righteousness…
I know that the doctrine and principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ are the foundational sources of direction for our lives and of enduring joy in mortality and eternity.

Elder David A. Bednar

Scripture

78 Teach ye diligently and my grace shall attend you, that you may be instructed more perfectly in theory, in principle, in doctrine, in the law of the gospel, in all things that pertain unto the kingdom of God, that are expedient for you to understand;
