Lesson from Come Follow Me Program:
What blessings does Heavenly Father promise if I obey the commandments?
Almost every commandment we receive from Heavenly Father is accompanied by a promised blessing. Obedience to the commandments brings freedom, personal growth, protection from danger, and many other temporal and spiritual blessings. Ultimately our obedience can lead to eternal life in the presence of Heavenly Father. Identifying these blessings can inspire us and others to obey the commandments.
Commandments are no more restrictive to the spiritual man than street signs are to the motorist. Neither prohibits our progress; to the contrary, they enhance it by serving as guideposts or directional signs to help us find and reach our destination.
Ice Cream Cone + Vitamins
“I think one of the big things that I love about commandments is the fact that they just make sense. The natural consequences of living the commandments are already so good for us but then on top of that Heavenly Father heaps on added blessings!! He is like an eager first time dad, he just wants to give us all the best things--I mean, imagine the dad that tells his child "if you eat your vitamins I'll give you an ice cream cone" vitamins are great in the first place and have natural good effects and that should be enough but then you get ice cream too!!! ”
