Never a Better Hero

Kenneth Cope does a beautiful job singing this song he wrote about the Savior.

Never a Better Hero

Making His home with the lonely
Spending His days with the poor
Bring hope to their hearts
Giving man a new start with His cure

But not all would receive of His offering
Some even planned His decease
Yet He couldn’t forsake
Those whose lives He might save
So He refused to leave

[Chorus:] Never a better hero
Never a truer man
Hopin’ to save us
By taking our pain in His hands
Never a greater compassion
Never a wasted day
Not one regret, true to the end
There was never a better way

Now He knew His life would be shortened
But never murmured a word of complaint
For He had in mind
A much greater design
And it helped Him through the pain

He gave men power to take Him
Knowing His death would bring life
And it was no surprise
There was love in His eyes when He died

[Chorus:]

But death was not the end
For He would live again

[Chorus:]

All that He did
Follow and live
There’ll be never a better way

Good is of God

Screen shot 2015-08-16 at 8.49.42 PM I saw a documentary about an artist that paints pictures of the Savior. When he was first married, his first wife and one of his children, died in a car accident. He said because of that accident, he believes he paints with more feelings. This tragedy was turned into a positive blessing in his life, by giving him more compassion. He was able to put more emotion into his art work.
There is a scripture I like that says, “There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world, upon which all blessings are predicated And when we obtain any blessings from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated.”
The way I understand this scripture is that for every law in the universe that we follow, we will be blessed for following that law. For example, if we don’t smoke we have a better chance of not getting lung cancer. If we don’t speed while we are driving, we will be blessed by not getting a speeding ticket.
I believe any idea that teaches good is of God. We can learn valuable truths from many religions. Every time we learn with an open mind we are blessed.
