For Family Home Evening, for the lesson, we watched some videos on LDS.ORG. We watched the video on the Widow’s Mite, and another one on the sacrifices people pay to attend the temple. I am so blessed. I am rich, and yet do I make the most of what the Lord has given to me? I have the temple right nearby, and do I attend it as much as I should? Probably not; and this life is meant for me to get my priorities straight, in line with the will of the Lord.
This evening, for wholesome entertainment, we watched “The Men In Black II: Back In Black”. It was pretty funny. (Who let the dogs out? Woof! Woof!)
Do I believe in the power of Christ unto salvation? If so I can be healed. (Alma 15:6,8) How many times have I walked around with a chip on my shoulder, or felt wounded by another. If I forgive them, then I will be forgiven for those who I have hurt through my insensitivity. A lot of the time, I should not worry about what others have done, but just worry about what I have done; and just be the best person I can be.
“Now these are the words which Jesus taught his disciples that they should say unto the people. Judge not unrighteously, that ye be not judged: but judge righteous judgment.
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in they brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?” (JST Matthew 7:1-3)
I think of how many times I have criticized someone else, and I am still not perfect in obeying the law. I need to work on myself. Although, am I my brother’s keeper (Genesis 4:9)?
“And except ye have charity ye can in nowise be saved in the kingdom of God; neither can ye be saved in the kingdom of God if ye have not faith; neither can ye if ye have no hope (Moroni 10:21). Therefore, I must give freely, to edify, thus building up the kingdom of God.
This is what I previously wrote after reading Alma 15: Trusting The Lord’s Messengers
