    I am a Latter-day Saint. A big thing that we focus on is improving ourselves by developing Christlike attributes (eg patience, charity, diligence, wisdom, etc).

    When I first contacted my local lodge, the main thing that piqued my interest was learning of the goal of making good men better.

    I felt that this went hand-in-hand with my own religious goals and values.

    I then learned that Freemasons make efforts to improve their communities through acts of service. Again, this went hand-in-hand with my faith.

    The other enticing aspect of the Craft to me is that, almost anywhere I can go, I'll always be able to depend on the brothers who may be near me (whether my car breaks down, I get lost, or need a place to stay for the night); however, I would exhaust every other available avenue and option before imposing myself on someone else's charity.

    These are the reasons why I became a MM; also, the weekly free food doesn't hurt.

    Sorry, I write in English , but Google somehow translates in Russian. I noticed that in men, the masons have one thing in common is certainly the intellect

    Of course it's in a good way it's a compliment. I had a friend Mason and I was in love with him because he was intelligent and intellectual
