How I love conference every six months. I find myself enjoying it more and more the older that I get. I find myself focusing on the words and how they apply to me. This talk was wonderful. He brought up so many good points. I love taking the chance to review his words.
“For verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
If we have faith as small as a mustard seed, the Lord can help us remove the mountains of discouragement and doubt in the tasks ahead of us as we serve with God’s children, including family members, Church members, and those who are not yet members of the Church.
Brothers and sisters, life can be filled with faith, joy, happiness, hope, and love when we exercise the smallest amount of real faith in Christ—even a mustard seed of faith.
I also loved how he talked about technology and how we spend so much time with it. How it has good things about it, but also there are bad. It can be addicting and influence people to never have a real conversation with each other. Everything is online. Everything is posted. Everything is there waiting for someone to find it. I love how he counseled us to unplug so that we may find the time to hear the still small voice.
I also enjoyed reading about service. How important that is for us and how Peter tells us in the scriptures tell us that Jesus, "went about doing much good".
What a wonderful tribute to our Savior. His ministry was one not only of teaching, but of serving others.
Perhaps the words that mean the most to me, are simply,
In our discipleship, we have many demands, concerns, and assignments. However, some activities must always be at the heart of our Church membership. “Wherefore,” the Lord commands, “be faithful; stand in the office which I have appointed unto you; succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees.”
May we all be responsible for serving those who need us most.
