Week of Dec 30 – Jan 6 2019
This episode talks about how we are responsible for our own learning. We are taught to examine what we are seeking for and what we want to get out of this year. I discuss Matthew 19 about the rich man who asks what he lacks and how that parable applies to our lives. I talk about humility and how sometimes it’s really hard to ask the Lord what we lack and then be humble enough to see it and then desire to change.
I discuss the scriptures in Matthew 6 about forgiveness and talk more about how important it is to learn to truly forgive. I quote two talks by Jeffrey R Holland “Be Ye Therefore Perfect Eventually” and “The Ministry of Reconciliation”
I quoted a Christian author I love named Chrystal Evans Hurst’s book She’s Still There, Rescuing the Girl Inside You. She talks about our obligation to act upon the things we learn in the scriptures. DO what we learn. It’s a great read. She’s very inspiring. In that section of the podcast, I talk about the importance of not just hearing the word of God – but really trying to incorporate His word into our lives.
I also talk about whining in the MTC, a dead deer in a stream, having the devil in me before church, fighting Satan UFC style and how to bribe your kids to read scriptures with candy and back scratches.
