TheoLOGIC Sense

This simple formula is all over the scriptures, especially in the Book of Mormon. And it works; I've tested it in my life and seen it in the lives of others.

Faith + Hope + Charity --(leads to Good Works)--> Happiness

Distrust + Fear + Selfishness --(leads to Iniquity)--> Despair/Misery

See Moroni 10:20-22Alma 7:24Isaiah 57:21Alma 41:102 Nephi 2:27Alma 40:12-14, and Alma 41:5.

Think about it: when you're scared, it's harder to reach out and trust and love. When you're selfish, it's also hard to do these. I tried to line these up with their opposites. It makes sense, so look at what you're feeling right now, and where you want to be. If they line up, awesome! If they don't, then you can see how to fix your course to achieve your goals. I love how the gospel of Jesus Christ is simple, logical, true, and applicable to my life.
