Have we not all one Father? Did not one God create us? Why do we profane the covenant of our fathers by breaking faith with one another? [Malachi 2:10]
Just as we were under the guidance of our earthly father as children, we should also be obedient to our Heavenly Father. God wants us to love others, even those who are hard to love; forgive others, even those who are hard to forgive; and serve others, even those who are hard to serve. If we practice and believe in these words, it will become easier to honor and obey God. Do something pleasant for someone today and you'll notice that you'll feel closer to your Heavenly Father.
