New Testament Come Follow Me FHE Lesson – “Be Thou an Example of the Believers”

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

This week Paul writes to Timothy, Titus, and Philemon. His council to them can be beneficial to each of us today. In this Come, Follow Me FHE lesson, you will learn more about gaining wisdom from the scriptures, the importance of doing good works, and how to be an example of the believers. Our FHE lessons include three lesson plans for different ages, treat recipes, activity ideas, and more.



1 Timothy 4:12

Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.



Have I Done Any Good? | Hymn #223

1. Have I done any good in the world today?
Have I helped anyone in need?
Have I cheered up the sad and made someone feel glad?
If not, I have failed indeed.
Has anyone’s burden been lighter today
Because I was willing to share?
Have the sick and the weary been helped on their way?
When they needed my help was I there?


Then wake up and do something more
Than dream of your mansion above.
Doing good is a pleasure, a joy beyond measure,
A blessing of duty and love.

2. There are chances for work all around just now,
Opportunities right in our way.
Do not let them pass by, saying, “Sometime I’ll try,”
But go and do something today.
’Tis noble of man to work and to give;
Love’s labor has merit alone.
Only he who does something helps others to live.
To God each good work will be known.
