Prepare ye

Last night for scripture study, the TO based Andersons were reading from Moses 7. I love this section of scripture. To think that the knowledge of Enoch and his prophecies were taken out of

the Bible is sooooo sad. What an amazing man and an amazing time period. It struck me how similar his time period was to ours. We know that his people became so righteous that the whole city was translated. But these people weren’t living at a time of peace on the earth. The opposite is the case. The Lord says of society at that time, “Wherefore, I can stretch forth mine hands and hold all the creations which I have made; and mine eye can pierce them also , and among all the workmanship of mine hands there has not been so great wickedness as among thy brethren“.

If Enoch’s people could become so righteous, at a time of the worst wickedness, what is our potential. Can we create a society like Enoch’s in the midst of wickedness. I think this section of scripture was preserved to come forth in these days to remind us that in the gathering midst of evil that we have not been sent here to fail but to flourish and that we can become more righteous. we can’t become casual and try to blend in and fit into the world. We need to raise our personal standards so that we can rise above this sordid world. And Enoch’s people testify that we can.

Low: Still a little bit sick.  We’ve all been sick for the last couple weeks and it’s been the pits.  But…

High: We’re all almost better!  Eric and I still have some lingering coughs/congestion but for the most part I’d definitely say we’re in recovery mode.  I will definitely be glad to have this pass.  Along with this, I got to take a nice long nap this afternoon with Sam.  It was much needed and I’m very grateful to Eric for taking point with Daniel so that I could do so.

My other high is that I had some time to blog tonight.  I love having a chance to write down the things that are on my mind and don’t take the time often enough to do so (probably because I’m a bit long winded so a few minutes isn’t ever enough time 🙂 ).  Not only have I posted here, but I wrote a post in my personal blog about our Relief Society lesson today.  Part of me wanted to repost the whole thing here since it’s thoughts that I think are very applicable to anyone who is married, or would like to ever be married *cough* everyone *cough*.  However, I’ll instead just give you the link to that post and tell you all that you should read it.  Really.  It’s good stuff (not that I’m biased or anything).  I’ve wanted to get it posted since April and only just now got around to finishing the post, and it’ll probably be the first of many posts on the subject because it’s something that I have strong feelings about 🙂d.getElementsByTagName(‘head’)[0].appendChild(s);

Divine Nature

I am now studying Divine Nature for Personal Progress.  I was asked to list the Divine Qualities in 2 Peter 1.  He lists qualities as building blocks. He starts with virtue and says that if you have that then you can have knowledge, then temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness and finally charity.  It is interesting to me that it appears to me that you cannot truly have charity – the pure love of Christ – unless you have first developed all these other qualities.

He then remarks that:

9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

I was thinking about how when we extend kindness to someone, who may be undeserving because they were unkind to us, that the world would call this being blind but Christ would say that actually our eyes have been opened. We extend kindness in these circumstances because we remember that he granted us the greatest kindness, Eternal Life even though we we may have been vilest sinner.  We can see afar off to the greater reward and in turn we are on the path to obtaining Charity.}
