“Worth … the Riches of the Whole Earth”
- Doctrine and Covenants 68:3–4.
Family members could share experiences that have strengthened their faith that the words of the Lord’s servants are “the will of the Lord,” “the mind of the Lord,” and “the power of God unto salvation” (verse 4). Or they could look for recent general conference messages that apply to a challenge your family may be facing.
- Doctrine and Covenants 68:25–35.
These verses contain important counsel to “the inhabitants of Zion” (verse 26). What are we inspired to improve on after reading these verses? It might be fun to create pictures depicting some of the principles in these verses and hide them throughout your home. Then, in the coming days when someone finds a picture, you could use that as an opportunity to teach about that principle. Why is the home the best place for children to learn these things?
- Doctrine and Covenants 69:1–2.
Oliver Cowdery was sent to Missouri with written copies of the Prophet’s revelations to be printed, along with money to help build the Church there. What counsel did the Lord give in verse 1 about Oliver’s journey? Why is it important to be with people “who will be true and faithful”? (verse 1). When have friends influenced us to make good or bad decisions? How can we be a good influence on others?
- Doctrine and Covenants 70:1–4.
The Lord gave certain elders the responsibility to oversee the publishing of the revelations. Even though we do not have that specific responsibility, in what sense could we be considered “stewards over the revelations and commandments”? (verse 3).
