My Savior's Birthday

Today I am celebrating the birthday of my Savior, Jesus Christ. As my gift to Him, I am developing my own list of ways I can be better disciplined in order to be a better disciple of His. It hit me that developing self discipline in and of itself and certainly for my own glory is incomplete and would be prideful and ultimately self destructive. But doing it as a means to another more important end is what I believe the admonition "enduring to the end" is meant to convey. That is what the commandments direct us to--to draw us closer and become a worthy disciple of His; not to make us "righteous."
