“When We Obtain Any Blessing from God, It Is by Obedience”
- Doctrine and Covenants 130:2, 18–19; 132:13, 19.
How might you use these verses to help your family prioritize things that last eternally? Maybe you could pack a suitcase or backpack together with items representing things that, according to Doctrine and Covenants 130:2, 18–19; 132:19, we can take with us into the next life, such as family pictures or scriptures. What does Doctrine and Covenants 132:13 teach us about things of the world? This could lead to a discussion about focusing on things that have eternal significance.
- Doctrine and Covenants 130:20–21.
You could sing a song about gratitude, such as “Count Your Blessings” (Hymns, no. 241), and make a list of the blessings your family has received for obeying God’s laws. What blessings do we hope to receive? How can we receive those blessings?
- Doctrine and Covenants 131:1–4; 132:15–19.
The video “Marriage Is Sacred” (ChurchofJesusChrist.org) might help your family discuss the truths in these verses. How does the Lord feel about marriage? How do we—whether we are married or single—prepare to have an eternal marriage?
