“When We Choose the Right, We Are Blessed,” Friend, Feb. 2012, 40–41
Daniel was playing soccer with his friends when he saw Joseph sitting alone, watching. Joseph wasn’t very good at soccer. But Daniel decided that he wanted Joseph to be included more than he wanted to win the game. He jogged over to Joseph and asked, “Do you want to play with us?”
Daniel chose the right.
Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have promised us that when we choose the right, we will be blessed. We have righteous examples to follow in the scriptures. Here are two:
When Noah followed the Lord’s command to build the ark, he saved several members of his family from the Flood. (See Genesis 6–8.)
When Nephi broke his hunting bow, he made a new bow instead of giving up. His father, Lehi, prayed for help, and the Lord led Nephi to food. (See 1 Nephi 16:18–32.)
Sometimes it’s hard to choose the right, but Heavenly Father blesses us when we do. As we make good decisions, we can feel peace and happiness.
