We Cannot Do Wrong and Feel Right

I get LDS daily gems. Nice spice for the day. Sometimes I SO want to
share them with others. Usually I resist the urge to pester. Anyone
can subscribe to them if they are intersted. But I am going to share
one of today's:

"In order to have joy, you need to understand that, as a child of your
Heavenly Father, you inherited divine traits and spiritual
needs--and just like a fish needs water, you need the gospel and
the companionship of the Holy Ghost to be truly, deeply happy. Because you
are the offspring of God (see Acts 17:28), it is incompatible with your
eternal nature to do wrong and feel right. It cannot be done. It is part of
your spiritual DNA, as it were, that peace, joy, and happiness will be
yours only to the degree you live the gospel."

(Marcus B. Nash, "The Great Plan of Happiness," Ensign, Nov. 2006, 49)

appropriate subscription list. You can also learn more about each list on that page.
