From experiences, great things often happen after one takes the plunge of faith.
What I like most about the faith I choose to follow is how absolutely simple it is. Just obey and follow, and then wait for the good things to come.

What's tragic about the latter is the unnecessary sacrifices along the way.
Being simple and follow the commandments always works best. Even if we don't get those extras, at least we live life as a good person
