An apostolic promise

henry-b-eyring-largeIn class this morning we were discussing King Benjamin’s sermon on service. During the lesson I took out my ipad to pull up a quote and saw that husband (who had no idea what our lesson was on) had emailed me a Quote of the Day that went along perfectly with the lesson. I used that instead of the one I’d planned to use.

“My promise to you who pray and serve the Lord cannot be that you will have every blessing you may wish for yourself and your family. But I can promise you that the Savior will draw close to you and bless you and your family with what is best. You will have the comfort of his love and feel the answer of his drawing closer as you reach out your arms in giving service to others. As you bind up the wounds of those in need and offer the cleansing of his atonement to those who sorrow in sin, the Lord’s power will sustain you. His arms are outstretched with yours to succor and bless the children of our Heavenly Father, including those in your family.” ~ Henry B. Eyring.
