My next Relief Society lesson is "Gaining Knowledge of Eternal Truths." It seems that everything I read or listen to points me in the direction of gaining knowledge. I was just setting here trying to think of something to blog about. I was thinking that my pondering was running a bit short. Nothing was coming to mind. I looked over and saw the back of my True To The Faith reference guide and there was the above scripture. I thought. "Wow there is my lesson in one sentence. Now that I have my lesson prepared I wonder what I will do the the rest of my 30 minutes?"
Not really. It is a good lesson and I can hardly wait to give it. I really do love that scripture.
I am grateful that the Lord has given me this opportunity to teach. I am grateful that He is mindful of me and shows me so many little things that can help me with His message. The other day as I was reading a passage by Joseph Smith I could not help but be amazed that this unlearned boy had turned into such a knowledgeable man. I had to actually look up two words in the paragraph so I could make sense out of the statement. Joseph Smith's understanding was truly quickened by the Spirit of God.
