During Sacrament meeting this Sunday we had a bunch of talks on things such as tithing, fast offerings, and the Law of Consecration. Towards the end of the meeting our awesome Bishop spoke to us more about service, and the importance it has in the role of our eternal salvation. This sacrament meeting was really touching to me, and it made me want to try and make service a more central part of my life.
In Doctrine & Covenants 42:30-42 talks about the Law of Consecration in great detail. The Law of Consecration is a Celestial law, so we’ll never be able to apply it perfectly into our lives in this life, but we can always strive harder to better fulfill it. I would like to become the kind of person that centers her life on service, big and small. I want to be a kind and loving mother, a devoted teacher in church callings, and whenever possible, working on service projects. That’s not who I am right now, but if I keep working at it every day, I can eventually get to that point. To become the kind of person I would like to be, I need to start everyday with a willingness to serve. It’s the small steps that lead to big changes.
That’s all for now! Until next time,
