Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! The work of reclaiming lost sheep must be a priority for all those who follow the true Shepherd.
For what shepherd is there among you having many sheep doth not watch over them, that the wolves enter not and devour his flock? And behold, if a wolf enter his flock doth he not drive him out? Yea, and at the last, if he can, he will destroy him.—Alma 5:59
This work of reclaiming the lost sheep, as Jesus so vividly expressed it, must receive top priority. We must use kindness, patience, long-suffering, love, faith, and diligence. They must feel our genuine concern and untiring love.—Joseph B. Wirthlin
This Day in Church History
1860: President Brigham Young affirms the Church’s position against suicide but states that the act itself is by no means unforgiveable under some circumstances.
1969: The Mormon Tabernacle Choir sings at the U.S. president Richard M. Nixon’s inauguration in Washington, D.C.
1974: Victor Nugent and his family, the first converts to the church in Jamaica, are baptized.
Why can it be hard to reach out to those who are struggling?
