Wednesday Words

For those of us serving in Primary or Young women callings . . . are we remembering to keep up with the weekly Relief Society lessons in our Gospel Principles Manual?

Keep them with your scriptures and one day a week read the lesson as part of your daily study. That being said it helps to have a lesson schedule too. . . which I don’t. So these “Words” for Wednesday are just an educated guess, only because last week’s words for the blog were about the Word of Wisdom and that was covered in Chapter 29. So Chapter 30?

On page 175 Concerning charity. . . .”We should not try to decide whether someone really deserves our help or not.”

I am afraid I have been far too guilty of wasting time deciding who is worthy of my time. Instead of just jumping in and giving love. . . I waste the time I could be giving . . .  judging.

In the same paragraph on page 175, it reads, “If we have taken care of our own family’s needs first, then we should help ALL who need help. In this way we will be like our Father in Heaven, who causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust alike. ”

Mosiah 4: 19 “Are we not all beggers? Do we not all depend upon the same Being, even God, for all the substance which we have, for both food and raiment, and for gold and silver, and for all the riches we have of every kind?” And continuing in verse 20,   “And has he suffered that ye have begged in vain? Nay, he has poured out his Spirit upon you , and has caused that your hearts should be filled with joy.”
