Although it would be nice if everyone understood and practiced the concepts discussed here, Latter-day Saints in particular should be sensitive to these things, as it is a main topic of what they hear when they attend the temple. There is nothing wrong with being comfortable, but we should be very, very careful to ensure that we do not obtain more than we reasonably need. When we go beyond what is reasonable for us--and that will be a little different for each individual or family--we focus on ourselves, and it seems to be impossible to focus on others at the same time that we are focusing on ourselves. The second of the Two Great Commandments does indeed apply to us, and if we ignore it we will not get what we are looking for in the end.
