Today was Fast and Testimony Sunday. We fast 2 consecutive meals (for example: breakfast and lunch). During Sacrament meeting on the first Sunday of each month, members are invited to share their testimony's.
During 2nd hour, I attended the 4th lesson on preparing for the temple. Today's lesson was about ordinances and covenants. Ordinances is the act (baptism, sacrament). Covenants are contracts that we make with Heavenly Father (taking of the sacrament, following commandments, etc.)
During 3rd hour, we discussed the art of conversations and 10 things that the happiest people do. The following was asked: "Love thy neighbor as thyself", but if we switch it to "Love thyself as thy neighbor", how does this change our perspective, if any? Something to ponder.
The following scripture is from the 2nd hour lesson:
"I, the Lord, am bound when ye do what I say; but when ye do not what I say, ye have no promise." ~ Doctrine and Covenants 82:10
