2 Nephi 26:31

"But the laborer in Zion shall labor for Zion; for if they labor for money they shall perish."
2 Nephi 26:31

I think it is sometimes hard to balance work and life, and sometimes we can feel like we're only laboring for money rather than for a higher purpose. Maybe though, a lot of it is about attitude. It's easy to get sidetracked into seeing life as a lot of effort just to survive... but it is really more than that. Even when we don't like parts of our lives, overall we're doing more than just surviving. We interact with other people, and even just with that, we can make a huge difference depending on our attitude, conversation, and example. Even at a job that is something chosen out of desperation, there are ways to improve the environment or lighten the burden... even if it is just for one person. Today, wherever we are and whatever we're doing, let's try focusing on Zion... on society and our interactions with other people... and work on doing everything we can to help others and lift them up. In doing so, we build Zion... perhaps just the tiniest bit, but making a difference in one situation and for one person still counts. Zion is made of those types of people... who make a difference in small ways, adding up to a better world.
