Today I, ____________________, will show my love to the Lord by keeping His commandments.
Pick a commandment that you often have trouble with, and try to keep it today. For example, be kind instead of rude to someone you don’t like, wear modest clothing, read the scriptures, or do family home evening if you missed it on Monday.
“Gratitude is a divine principle. The Lord declared through a revelation given to the Prophet Joseph Smith:
““Thou shalt thank the Lord thy God in all things. …
““And in nothing doth man offend God, or against none is his wrath kindled, save those who confess not his hand in all things.”” – The Divine Gift of Gratitude by Thomas S. Monson
