Are you righteous enough??

Have you ever met someone that automatically assumes they are "more righteous" than you? That they are better than you? That they believe in more than you or believe more than you? That somehow they will be in front of the righteous line in the end? I read something today from our ward newsletter and I really liked it. It was from our wonderful Bishop. He wrote: "The great measure of a man, his heart, his very being, is not found in his knowledge of the gospel, it is not found in the amount of times he has shown up for church, it is not found in what callings he has had, it is not found in his accomplishments in life, but it is found in the way he treats his family and neighbors!" Some people automatically think that they are better than you....that they have more food storage. That they have everything figured out. Not true. This post isn't directed at anyone in particular. Just my rantings at some things I've witnessed throughout my life. As my wonderful Grandma Revill would say: "She thinks she's so righteous, she probably wears 2 pairs of garments!" (Directed toward a lady in her ward.) Get over yourself and serve.

Grandma Revill

I had a hilarious Grandma. She was the funniest person I'd ever met. She always had a story and such a talent for telling them. I'd like to share some every once in a while. Today I was thinking of the time an improptu visit turned into a day trip. My sister and I were in a boutique up in Bountiful, and before heading up there to check things out, we decided to stop in Murray and say hello to our Grandma. When we realized we needed to leave after hours of laughing, we asked her if she wanted to go with us. So we all loaded up in the car. Me, Cyd, my mom, and my Grandma. We got there and she was so excited to spend the rest of the day with us. She looked at every little thing and kept saying "I wouldn't miss this for $100!" I'm glad that day she thought our company was worth more than $100. Miss her today.
