Welcome to the Neighborhood News
The great thing about this life is that we’re here to make our own choices. For good or bad, they’re ours to make, unless we allow others to make them for us.
Elder Faust said in his talk Choices, in the April 2004 Ensign:
“In this life we have to make many choices. Some are very important choices. Some are not. Many of our choices are between good and evil. The choices we make, however, determine to a large extent our happiness or our unhappiness, because we have to live with the consequences of our choices. Making perfect choices all of the time is not possible. It just doesn’t happen. But it is possible to make good choices we can live with and grow from. When God’s children live worthy of divine guidance they can become “free forever, knowing good from evil; to act for themselves and not to be acted upon.”
Please tell us what are your thoughts in this matter.
