Gospel Study - The Vision of Prophets Regarding Relief Society...
will be the first to admit I've never really enjoyed Relief Society. Sister Beck’s talk, The Vision of Prophets
Regarding Relief Society: Faith, Family, Relief, basically called me out. Time to repent.
appreciated Sister Beck’s comment that “Just as the Lord’s prophets have
continually taught elders and high priests their purposes and duties, they have
shared their vision for the sisters of the Relief Society.” Too often we whine
and complain about how little the prophets give the sisters direction – that
usually they just pat us on the head and tell us we’re amazing. I need to
remember that there is a lot more direction and instruction that we realize,
and I think we’d be better off actuallysearching
for that directionrather
than whining about how little exists.
need to remember that Relief Society is meant to “increase faith and personal
righteousness, strengthen families and homes, and seek out and help those in
need.” Maybe I don’t like Relief society
because I make it so complicated. LOL. Keep it simple… faith, family, help. I can do that.
have responsibilities here… “relieve the poor… expound the scriptures… share
the gospel… engage in temple work… become more spiritually and temporally
