Today I, ____________________, will prepare so that I can reserve Sunday for the activities that are appropriate for the Sabbath day.
“During sacrament meeting, be reverent and willing to learn. Refrain from activities that would distract you or others during this sacred meeting.” – For the Strength of Youth
This coming Sunday, ____________________, commit to be reverent during sacrament meeting and willing to learn. I will refrain from activities that would distract me or others during the meeting.
(Continued from yesterday)
“So how do we go about receiving by the Spirit? I would suggest two ideas: accept responsibility for our learning and ask faithful questions…
“The second idea comes from James—from the sacred words that inspired Joseph Smith to go into the Sacred Grove:
““If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
““But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed” (James 1:5–6).
“The Lord constantly instructs us to ask, seek, and knock with the divine promise that we will receive, find, and have doors of revelation opened unto us. Asking faithful questions is the pattern established by the Lord for us to invite the guidance of the Spirit in our lives.” – To Be Edified and Rejoice Together by A. Roger Merrill
