“To Have the Heavens Opened”
- Doctrine and Covenants 106:6.
What can our family do to cause “joy in heaven”?
- Doctrine and Covenants 107:99–100.
Give a family member written instructions for a household task, and invite him or her to choose how to do the task: diligently, slothfully, or without reading the instructions. Let the rest of the family watch him or her do the task and guess which approach the family member chose. Then let other family members have a turn. Why does the Lord need us to both learn our duties and do them with all diligence? (See Becky Craven, “Careful versus Casual,” Ensign or Liahona, May 2019, 9–11.)
- Doctrine and Covenants 108:7.
How can we strengthen each other in our conversations? in our prayers? in our exhortations, or encouragement? in all our doings? You might choose one of these to work on as a family.
