“These standards are a guide to help you make correct choices. Review the standards often and ask yourself, “Am I living the way the Lord wants me to live?” and “How have I been blessed by living these standards?”” – For the Strength of Youth
I, ____________________, commit to review the standards found in the For the Strength of Youth pamphlet often during this segment.
Ask yourself, “Am I living the way the Lord wants me to live?” and “How have I been blessed by living these standards?”
“Let’s consider the New Testament account of the rich young ruler. He was a righteous young man who was already keeping the Ten Commandments, but he wanted to become better. His goal was eternal life.
“When he met the Savior, he asked, “What lack I yet?”
“Jesus answered immediately, giving counsel that was intended specifically for the rich young man. “Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and … come and follow me.”
“The young man was stunned; he had never considered such a sacrifice. He was humble enough to ask the Lord but not faithful enough to follow the divine counsel he was given. We must be willing to act when we receive an answer.” – What Lack I Yet? by Larry R. Lawrence
