You can inspire a meaningful discussion by inviting class members to respond to a specific question or idea that relates to the scriptures they read at home. For example, you could invite them to share something they learned this week about Heavenly Father or Jesus Christ.
Invite class members to write on the board anything they learned about the Savior this week from studying sections 60–62, along with the related verses. Or they could search Doctrine and Covenants 60:2–4; 61:1–2, 20, 36–38; 62:1, 6
to find things taught about the Savior. What stories from the scriptures or our own lives illustrate the roles and attributes of the Savior that we have learned about? (for example, John 8:1–11; Ether 2:14–15). You could invite class members to share their testimonies of Jesus Christ or to privately reflect on what He means to them.
in pairs or small groups and share what they feel might be the Lord’s message to us.
When have they felt that they should use their own judgment in making a decision?
Consider sharing the statement by President Dallin H. Oaks as part of your discussion
President Dallin H. Oaks taught:
“A desire to be led by the Lord is a strength, but it needs to be accompanied by an understanding that our Heavenly Father leaves many decisions for our personal choices. Personal decision making is one of the sources of the growth we are meant to experience in mortality. Persons who try to shift all decision making to the Lord and plead for revelation in every choice will soon find circumstances in which they pray for guidance and don’t receive it. For example, this is likely to occur in those numerous circumstances in which the choices are trivial or either choice is acceptable.
“We should study things out in our minds, using the reasoning powers our Creator has placed within us. Then we should pray for guidance and act upon it if we receive it. If we do not receive guidance, we should act upon our best judgment” (“Our Strengths Can Become Our Downfall,” Ensign, Oct. 1994, 13–14).
