My Thought

  My thought today comes from The book of Mormon in the book of Alma chapter 9 verse 28. The reason for this thought, is being leadership on a mission is a lot like being in a leadership responsibilities in jobs or wherever we have been selected to lead. Where sometimes, the last thing on your list is to worry about yourself. We, as missionaries, have to work in our own area, but we also have to look after the other missionaries areas to make sure things are going smooth. So, there are lots of prayers offered for them, the people they teach and for the people we teach and come in contact with. We have been sharing this with the missionaries we have been going on team ups with as part of our "training" to help encourage them to work hard. Here is the scripture:

 "Therefore, prepare ye the way of the Lord, for the time is at hand that all men shall reap a reward of their works, according to that which they have been—if they have been righteous they shall reap the salvation of their souls, according to the power and deliverance of Jesus Christ; and if they have been evil they shall reap the damnation of their souls, according to the power and captivation of the devil."

  These are such important things to remember as missionaries and as everyday people, because we may in some way be preparing the way of the Lord by our actions because people are always watching the things that we do and say. We need to go around doing good for many reasons, but just from this scripture and the many other scriptures like it, the reward for doing good is FAR greater than that of for doing evil. Everyone, the time is at hand so lets do all we can to prepare for that great day when the Lord comes again, I know every little thing we do can make a HUGE difference. I say that in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen

  1. It is amazing how big a difference you can make in the little things you do each day. A couple weeks ago, during a testimony meeting, someone said "I want others to not only see me and know I am a Mormon, but to see me and know that I am a Christian. That my actions are those of Christ's." I think we can all take a page from this man's book and strive for the same goal.
