Good morning all,
The word of the day is “selfless.” I was chattin’ it up with one of my buddies yesterday and he was saying some good stuff about friendship and teamwork. He mentioned that he believed one of the biggest detriments to a team was selfish acts and not looking out for others. He made a great point that if team members, whether in sports, business, or life took an approach of selflessness then we would start seeing some great stuff happen. JC said it best:
"Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends."
Wow. I think the Savior knew a thing or two about this statement. This year you have so much to think about – responsibilities are of no shortage in each of your lives right now. As a family in Christ we have the opportunity to be even stronger than if we were on our own. My question is: What will it take for you to become the kind of friend in the above passage? God has given us life, friendship, and influence. I pray that each of you asks the Lord to make you a better friend each day, both in your personal lives and in your daily relationships.
Praying for you,
