Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Do you feel like your Sunday meetings are less than inspiring? Take a closer look at what the Lord would have our Sabbath day worship be like.
And he commanded them that there should be no contention one with another, but that they should look forward with one eye, having one faith and one baptism, having their hearts knit together in unity and in love one towards another.—Mosiah 18:21
I hope that each person who attends will be welcomed at the door and will sense a great feeling of love and caring that the bishop has. That is symbolic of the Lord’s great, unconditional love for each of us. We should feel wanted, valued, and accepted at these meetings. No one should feel like a stranger.—W. Mack Lawrence
