D&C 25:10 -- On Seeking A Better World

"And verily I say unto thee that thou shalt lay aside the things of this world, and seek for the things of a better."
Doctrine and Covenants 25:10

Good advice, but very hard.  We get caught up in the world, because we're here, because it is all around us, and we often forget to step back and get a more spiritual perspective.  I think that is why we are sometimes counseled to keep reminders around... put spiritual pictures or quotations on the wall or the desk, keep spiritual music in mind, etc.  We need those reminders about not getting too enmeshed in the stuff that doesn't really matter.  Today, let's step back a little when we feel like the world is taking over our minds and emotions.  Let's remember that God has promised us more.  Let's step back, get some space between what is happening and how we are reacting, and give that space to God.  Let's pray, and read, and find other ways to remember him and always seek something better.
