Doctrine and Covenants 101:26-30

"And in that day the enmity of man, and the enmity of beasts, yea, the enmity of all flesh, shall cease from before my face.
And in that day whatsoever any man shall ask, it shall be given unto him.
And in that day Satan shall not have power to tempt any man.
And there shall be no sorrow because there is no death.
In that day an infant shall not die until he is old; and his life shall be as the age of a tree;"
Doctrine and Covenants 101:26-30

These verses are telling us a little bit of what life will be like during the Millennium.  Can you imagine how cool it will be?  The sorrow part is interesting.  I never really thought about how much of the sorrow in our lives is tied to physical illness and death, or the fear of the same.  If that possibility were off the table, what else is there to feel sorrow about?  Maybe we didn't get a promotion or we didn't have enough to eat... but again, the second verse of this selection says that whatever we ask we will be given.  So... no sorrow? :)  We could still be sad that someone isn't reaching their potential or that we don't have enough time to become who we want to be... learn all the stuff, get all the degrees.  But then, our lives as the age of a tree?  Wow.  We totally have time to do all the stuff. :)  And it seems like an environment very conducive to reaching your potential, so maybe not even that. :)  And no temptation.  That's pretty cool too.  I'm not sure how much temptation is external from him, and how much is internal from us... but I'm imagining that losing that external pressure will make things a lot easier as well. :)  Some of the verses before this talk about gathering Zion together and preparing for when everything corruptible is going to be wiped away, and that is one of the ways that we get to this point.  Today, let's work on building Zion and being incorruptible. :)  So maybe someday we can see this... and help build this future.
