1 Timothy 6:18

"That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate."
1 Timothy 6:18

This is a short verse, but there is so much packed in there. Rich in good works… so much more important than being monetarily rich, then ready to distribute… which I think is talking about our willingness to give to others. And then communication. I love that communication is part of the gospel? I mean, everything is of course part of the gospel, but cool that God mentions it here. Prayer is a good form of communication, but this scripture doesn't specify that form, so I think that it goes further.... We need each other on this earth... we need each other to build a righteous community. That includes good works, distribution, and communication. We need each other as part of life’s test (Neal A. Maxwell said that we are each other's clinical experience). Almost everything we are learning in this life involves other people. We learn to interact, to love, to listen... to do good, to distribute, to communicate. Every person we interact with on this earth is there for a reason... part of the plan. So, today, let's help each other pass today's test. :) And, inasmuch as it is possible... have fun doing it. :)
