In Doctrine and Covenants 58:27, the Lord invites His disciples to be “anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will, and bring to pass much righteousness.”
In today’s modern world, the word “anxious” has a lot of negative connotations. Our efforts to do good can often turn toxic when faced with rampant perfectionism and judgment. If you find it’s hard to be anxiously engaged without becoming anxious, consider these principles.
It’s Not About What You Do, But Why You Do It
The Lord cares more about our motivations than how many tasks we accomplish or how impressive our service is. It’s all about the state of our hearts and the depth of our desire to worship God as an instrument in His hands.
We can take comfort in knowing that we can change our hearts by growing in love for Jesus Christ. When we do that, we will naturally be inclined to do good and become engaged in the work of the Lord.
