Sabbath Learning – Forgiveness

“Holding a grudge is like drinking poison and expecting someone else to die.”

Today I am in Denver, and in Elders Quorum we reviewed Elder Uchtdorf’s talk entitled “The Merciful Obtain Mercy” which talks about forgiveness of others and ourselves. What a beautiful talk.

Some of the golden nuggets of thought that really stuck out to me are after the break.



Sabbath Learning – No Poor Among Them

And the Lord called his people Zion, because they were of one heart and one mind, and dwelt in righteousness; and there was no poor among them. Moses 7:18.

This is a fairly straight forward scripture except for the phrase, “there was no poor among them.” This could have multiple meanings. This morning Pres. Adamson shared the thought that what the Lord may be implying is that none of his children in Zion were poor in ordinances. All of his children had received all of the saving ordinances. What a great definition of Zion.


Sabbath Learning – Media and Gaming

Today the Bishop called the young men and parents together to discuss the topic of media and gaming. I was very impressed by the Priests Quorum because they spoke before the bishop on the effects of gaming including addiction, attitude, and wasted time.

Some of the highlights from the meeting were as follows:

  • One example was of Quinn Pitcock, a professional NFL player, that lost his multimillion dollar career due to video game addiction.
  • Use media only for those things that uplift.
  • If youth give up video games now they will be much better missionaries when they serve.
  • Ask yourself does the digital activity I’m involved in enlarge my ability to live, love and flourish. If not, change the activity to one that will enlarge these three areas.
