3 Nephi 7:18

"And it came to pass that they were angry with him even because he had greater power than they, for it were not possible that they could disbelieve his words, for so great was his faith on the Lord Jesus Christ that angels did minister unto him daily."
3 Nephi 7:18

This was interesting to me this morning... I remember on my mission that if someone actually believed what we were teaching that I thought most of the hard work was done... and it was tragic the few times I encountered people who absolutely believed, but wouldn't do anything about it.  Of course, the things that we see as a tragedy in others often prove to be the biggest beams in our own eyes... and so, this scripture.  All of these people believed.  They believed, and yet the truth just made them angry.  I wonder how often we do that in our lives, and don't realize it... or do it *and* realize it.  How can we look at the truth, know it to be the truth, and then reject it anyway?  And yet... so often, we do.  Today, let's try to take a serious look at what we believe, and then see what we can do, even if it is small, about being happy about it. :)
