The October 2014 issue of the Arbor features daily accountability:
Continue to take personal inventory, and when you are wrong promptly admit it.
That's not always easy, but it's crucial. As Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Council of the Twelve Apostles explains in "Decisions for Eternity":
Each day is a day of decision, and decisions determine our destiny.
An anonymous contributor to the Arbor uses these helpful questions to assess her/his daily conduct:
- Did I pray to know and follow God's will today? What progress did I make?
- What weaknesses do I need to surrender to God?
- In what ways was I kind and loving?
- Was I able to "let go and let God?"
- Do I need to make amends to anyone?
- Did faith, or fear, control my thoughts?
- Am I taking care of myself physically, emotionally, and spiritually?
- What am I grateful for today?
That we may choose wisely each day's decisions for eternity is my earnest prayer.
