Alma 32:31

"And now, behold, are ye sure that this is a good seed? I say unto you, Yea; for every seed bringeth forth unto its own likeness."
Alma 32:31

I really like this verse.  The whole chapter is amazing, but this verse individually reminds me today that if we plant good seeds, then we will reap good plants.  We don't plant good and reap evil.  Symbolically, here, it is talking about the gospel.  If you experiment with praying to God and reading your scriptures, and it makes your life better, that means it is good.  And I think it applies to what we do as well.  The actions we take in life produce the people that we are, and what we become.  If we want to be good people, we can't do bad things.  Love, kindness, service... those things turn us into good people.  Resentment, hatred, cruelty... those things produce much different results.  We're choosing every day who we will be.  Let's choose good.
