‘Be Well’ Or ‘Stay Thirsty My Friend’

The birth of the Carpenter’s son, and his life teachings,  has brought about more good in this world than the combined lives of us all.  The change for good that his teachings have on mankind is incalculable.  Christ’s birth is a hallmark for the ages and is the most important event in the history of this world. Unfortunately much evil and misery has also been brought upon mankind by the abuse of Christ’s name and abuse of the doctrine that He taught. The gospel of Jesus Christ is really very simple,  but it is man who makes it complex and confusing. If we would but follow His simple teachings and that of His prophets the world would be such a happier place.

I know that my life would be empty without the gospel,  and I have often wondered what it would be like without the iron rod to hold on to giving me hope.  What a joy it is to know what I am doing here and that life is more than just a accident that has no purpose and no meaning. Most of us are looking for something; something that we never find in the material things of this world. Our souls yearn for substance that will quench our thirst and give meaning to life. That is why the Savior said to the woman at the well, that water from the well would quench her physical thirst for a short time but that His gospel would quench her thirst for the meaning of life, giving her purpose and an understanding of the plan of salvation.  Jesus said unto her:

“Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4: 13-14)

We can, as a popular ad says, ‘stay thirsty’, or we can ‘be well’ by drinking of the waters springing up into everlasting life ‘my friend.’
