    Are your choices helping you to live an abundance life?

    Living the Abundance Life

    "So much in life depends on our attitude. The way we choose to see things and respond to others makes all the difference. To do the best we can and then to choose to be happy about our circumstances, whatever they may be, can bring peace and contentment."

    —Thomas S. Monson, "Living the Abundance Life", Liahona and Ensign, January 2012

    Do you think you're achieving anything with these tiresome threads?

    other words that rhyme with living are: giving, sieving, and tithing

    You're on the other extreme. You start NO threads.

    People always only yelping from the sidelines can get tiresome too.

    Someone who describes disagreement as "yelping" is coming to the rescue of a serial plagiarist who never discusses anything with anyone, ever. 😵

    Hang on, which one are you again? It would be a lot easier to follow your opinion if you'd stick to just one name.

    Ok Jaywill, yes you're right, I don't start threads here very often these days. Does that make Lloyd's "quote-'n'-run-'n'-never-post-a-word-of-your-own" habit any less tiresome to you?

    Could you please explain what you mean by 'yelping'?

    In the Hebrew Bible as well as the New Testament the most abundant life is related to a corporate experience in which oneness and unity prevails.

    "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell in unity!

    If is like the fine oil upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, upon Aaron's beard, that ran down to the hem of his garments;

    Like the dew of Hermon that came down upon the mountains of Zion.
    For there Jehovah commanded the blessing: Life forever. "

    (Psalm 133)


    The richest life, the most abundant life is that life commanded by God upon the unity of love among brothers.

    The dew of Herman refers to both the refreshingness of this life.
    The oil upon Aaron relates to the Spirit of God - oil a symbol of the Holy Spirit.

    Eternal life in its ultimate expression has to be something of a collective nature, an aggregate of all the saved of God loving God and one another.

    So when Christ speaks of eternal life or life abundant, He has to mean its ultimate enjoyment is something corporate in a great collective Body.

    So we see the New Jerusalem in the end of the Bible as a "city".
