I know that I have been prosperous by obeying the commandments. Because I have obeyed the commandments, others seem to trust me more. Since they trust me, they want to do business with me, and they desire my friendship. As a result, I have a job, I have a wife, I have friends, and more! The Lord has entrusted me with a lot.
I also am better off financially than at least 90% of the world’s population. I live in a great country, which has been consecrated by the Lord to benefit those who obey the commandments (2 Nephi 1:7).
This is what I wrote previously after reading 2 Nephi1: Awake And Rise Above The Dust Of The Earth
