Mosiah 2:41

"And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God.  For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness.  O, remember remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it."
Mosiah 2:41

King Benjamin rocks. :)  ... and of course, more than that, the content of what he says here is surpassingly hopeful.  If we keep the commandments we'll be blessed, not just spiritually or in the long-term, but temporally, now, on earth.  Those blessings, of course, are guided by the wisdom of God, and it doesn't mean that if we are righteous we will be rich or we'll be protected from losing our jobs or any of that necessarily... but it could mean that, if that is what we need in our individual lives in order to bless the lives of others.  I like the idea, as well, of never-ending happiness.  Sometimes it feels like this world is a roller coaster (incidentally, I don't like to ride roller coasters) of emotion... and there are great, amazing times when you are completely happy and content... but then there is the inevitable fast downward plunge. :)  I would like to make it to that point where there is never-ending happiness.  No matter how hard life is at certain moments, never-ending happiness is worth it... is it not? :)
