Moroni 7:13 -- On Finding and Encouraging Good

"But behold, that which is of God inviteth and enticeth to do good continually; wherefore, every thing which inviteth and enticeth to do good, and to love God, and to serve him, is inspired of God."
Moroni 7:13

This kind of goes along with Philippians 4:8: "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."  The idea is that there is good all around us.  It isn't relegated only to one race, or faith, or political party, but we can find good things all around us.

This is interesting beyond the concept of external observation as well.  If we think about the things that we do in our own lives, maybe this is a good way judge ourselves as well, in order to improve.  Do we encourage others to love God?  Are we inviting and enticing others to do good, or are we perhaps doing the opposite?  If we want to be "of God," then working on encouraging good and love and service looks like a good plan. :)

Today, let's look for the good in the world around us, and let's also BE the good in the world around us.
