Come Follow Me FHE Lesson - One Heart and One Mind

Come Follow Me FHE Lesson – One Heart and One Mind

The Lord has told us through His prophet that among the most important work we can be engaged in is the work of gathering scattered Israel. We come from different families, backgrounds, races, ethnicities, nations, and ideologies. But to become Zion, we must be of one heart and one mind. This lesson explores how we can be more of a Zion-like people.

Book-Of-Mormon-IconSm

Scripture

Moses 7:18

And the Lord called his people Zion, because they were of one heart and one mind, and dwelt in righteousness; and there was no poor among them.

Hymn

I’ll Walk with You | Children’s Songbook

If you don’t walk as most people do,
Some people walk away from you,
But I won’t! I won’t!
If you don’t talk as most people do,
Some people talk and laugh at you,
But I won’t! I won’t!
I’ll walk with you. I’ll talk with you.
That’s how I’ll show my love for you.
Jesus walked away from none.
He gave his love to ev’ryone.
So I will! I will!
Jesus blessed all he could see,
Then turned and said, “Come, follow me.”
And I will! I will!
I will! I will!
I’ll walk with you. I’ll talk with you.
That’s how I’ll show my love for you.

Lesson

FOR CHILDREN

Read: Moses 7:18, found above.

Ask: What do you think it means to be of one heart and one mind?

Explain: We don’t need to be exactly the same to be “of one heart and one mind.” If all we have in common is our love and respect for each other, that’s still enough to connect us together. (Consider showing a Venn Diagram showing how we can each love unique things, but as long as our love and respect for each other are in common, we can still be connected through that love.)

Ask: How does loving others demonstrate our love for the Lord?

Video: This video shows how even when we are different, we can love others and include them, even if they are different from us. This will help us have the Lord in our hearts and minds if we love others like He does.

Testify: We are more unified when we love others like Jesus loves us.

Call to Action: How can we be more inclusive and loving of people who are different from us? How can we share the love of the Lord with others?

FOR TEENS & ADULTS

Read: Moses 7:18, found above

Ask: How can we be one while still maintaining our unique likes, dislikes, interests, and unique cultures across the world?

Quote: Elder Quentin L. Cook taught, “With our all-inclusive doctrine, we can be an oasis of unity and celebrate diversity. Unity and diversity are not opposites. We can achieve greater unity as we foster an atmosphere of inclusion and respect for diversity. During the period I served in the San Francisco California Stake presidency, we had Spanish-, Tongan-, Samoan-, Tagalog-, and Mandarin-language-speaking congregations. Our English-speaking wards were composed of people from many racial and cultural backgrounds. There was love, righteousness, and unity.”

Ask: How is the doctrine of Jesus Christ “all-inclusive” as Elder Cook said it is?

Scripture: 2 Nephi 26:33 “he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the heathen; and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile.”

Video: Elder Patrick Kearon shares his experience of coming to see unity through differences in the Church. “This is it. This is the Church. We’re from everywhere. We include everybody. And this is where I belong.” Available to watch here.

Ask: How can we be more inclusive at church? How can we be more inclusive at work or school or with friends of other faiths?

Optional Video, especially for youth: How has ministering and serving one another brought unity to this class of young women? Note: Prior to recent changes, young women aged 16-18 were termed “Laurels,” and young women 12-13 were called “Beehives.” Available to watch here.

Explain and Testify: Looking for our commonality as children of God, if nothing else, can bring us together and make us unified. When we have greater unity, we feel more love for one another and a greater measure of the Lord’s Spirit in our lives.

Call to Action: What forgiveness can we offer, who can we include, how can we minister to others in a way that will bring more unity to our family, ward, and community?

FOR SINGLE STUDY

Read: Moses 7:18

Watch or Read: Elder Cook’s recent talk on unity including examples of how we can be more inclusive of those different from us. Available here.

Optional Video: Differences make the world beautiful. Available here.

Consider and commit: Is my behavior in keeping with my desire to be part of a Zion-like people? How can I get outside of myself and be more inclusive of others, even if they are different from me?
