Dear friends, have I mentioned that I currently teach (or rather prepare & share) youth Sunday school class at church? Half the youth in the class are mine! It’s a small group!! This week’s lesson is on ‘Why is learning an important part of Heavenly Father’s plan? You can look up the topic on http://www.lds.org/youth – see ‘Come, Follow Me,’ first lesson in February.
I was touched by the talk given as part of the preparation by Dieter F. Uchtdorf, an Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ. Sharing the example of the ancient Apostles asking the Saviour, “Lord, is it I?” and modern parables, President Uchtdorf explains why we must learn to see ourselves clearly.
seeing ourselves clearly is the beginning of wisdom
And he promises that “as we do so, our bountiful God will lead us by the hand; we will ‘be made strong, and blessed from on high.” Isn’t that wonderful? So I’m going to try to see and work on my mistakes more than the mistakes of others 🙂
