English

Today we have the same choice that Moises gave the people: act according to the will of God or act against it. If we act according to the will of God, we will be deeply happy and blessed. If we act against it, we will be unhappy. It is not that God punishes us, it is that we are either acting according to how he created us, or we are acting against our nature. If we want to be happy, we must choose to act according to the will of God. May we do so every day of our lives.

 

Español

Hoy tenemos la misma elección que Moisés le dio al pueblo: actuar según la voluntad de Dios o actuar en contra de ella. Si actuamos según la voluntad de Dios, seremos profundamente felices y bendecidos. Si actuamos en contra, seremos infelices. No es que Dios nos castigue, es que estamos actuando de acuerdo a cómo él nos creó, o estamos actuando contra nuestra naturaleza. Si queremos ser felices, debemos elegir actuar según la voluntad de Dios. Que lo hagamos todos los días de nuestras vidas.
