Weekly Email #3

MHey family, 

Christlike attributes have always been my favorite and I'd learnt a lot when I applied it on my mission. I realized when I began to apply patience and humility during that period of time in my mission, I began to have more patience and humble then before. This week, I started Christlike attributes again and I am working on being diligence and humble. Pride is always a huge issue for every men. We want to be cool, we want to have all the glory, we want to show others that we are the men and we are in power. I used to struggle in all of those but ever since I started applying humility in my life, I began to learn to recognize the importance of being humble. 

I always asked myself what reward will I get for being prideful? None. Nobody wants to be with me or talk to me because its really hard to communicate with people that are prideful. Ezra Taft Benson says, "pride is convinced who is right, humility is convinced with what is right." By wriing this email every week, I ponder a lot and I learnt a lot too. 



This is the copy of Christlike attributes found in Preach My Gospel chapter 6. I would definitely recommend it to you. I know that dad and mom have a new calling. Know that President Teh didnt pick you but Heavenly Father is the one that pick you. My only advice is to magnify your calling, no matter busy you you get.

32 For your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.
3 Nephi 13:32-33

If we put God first, everything that we need will be added upon us. The only way to know if this is true is to try it out. If i were to make you a chocolate cake, how do you know it will taste good? You have to TRY IT! Then it will be your own personal testimony that you know its true. The reason why I am want to follow all the commandments are because I have seen the consequence of not following the commandments. Families breaking apart, personal problems arise and many many more. Take a look at our family now and see how different we were from before? It is the blessings from God because we follow the commandments that are set by God. If it wasnt for the church, I dont think we would be as a happy family now. In order to continue to enjoy that blessings, we need to follow the commandments because it will help us to prepare for the worst.
