Write on the board In Doctrine and Covenants 93, Jesus Christ invited us to … Invite class members to suggest ways they would complete the sentence.
Doctrine and Covenants 93 contains many truths about our eternal nature and potential as children of God. Some class members may have discovered these truths during their study of section 93 at home (see this week’s outline in Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families). Those who did could share what they found, and you could discover other truths as a class.
How could these truths affect the way we treat people around us—or ourselves?
Here’s a way to learn about our eternal nature and potential: class members could read together
verse 24 and display on the board the three headings
As we are, As we were, and As we are to come. You could then divide the class into three groups and ask each group to search Doctrine and Covenants 93:6–39, looking for truths about our present, past, or future eternal identity
. Each group could write under the headings what they found.
How do these truths influence the choices we make?
The command to “set in order your own house” (verse 43)
isn’t about organizing cupboards and closets but about teaching—and learning—“light and truth”
(verse 42). Perhaps class members could share how they are trying to follow this counsel.
What are some challenges they face?
What truths or principles in Doctrine and Covenants 93 can help?
As part of your discussion of these verses, class members could read parts of President Henry B. Eyring’s message
Elder David A. Bednar taught:
“In my office is a beautiful painting of a wheat field. The painting is a vast collection of individual brushstrokes—none of which in isolation is very interesting or impressive. In fact, if you stand close to the canvas, all you can see is a mass of seemingly unrelated and unattractive streaks of yellow and gold and brown paint. However, as you gradually move away from the canvas, all of the individual brushstrokes combine together and produce a magnificent landscape of a wheat field. Many ordinary, individual brushstrokes work together to create a captivating and beautiful painting.
“Each family prayer, each episode of family scripture study, and each family home evening is a brushstroke on the canvas of our souls. No one event may appear to be very impressive or memorable. But just as the yellow and gold and brown strokes of paint complement each other and produce an impressive masterpiece, so our consistency in doing seemingly small things can lead to significant spiritual results. ‘Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great’ (D&C 64:33). Consistency is a key principle as we lay the foundation of a great work in our individual lives and as we become more diligent and concerned in our own homes” (“More Diligent and Concerned at Home,” Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2009, 19–20).
