Scripture of the Month

And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.

To Think about Jesus
In relation to my previous post about reverence, this song is the one I first thought of and meant to post:

It shouldn't be hard to sit very still
And think about Jesus, his cross on the hill,
And all that he suffered and did for me;
It shouldn't be hard to sit quietly.
It shouldn't be hard, even though I am small,
To think about Jesus, not hard at all.

("To Think about Jesus," Children's Songbook, 71)

With those words in mind, it really should not be hard to think about Jesus during the sacrament, or at any time for that matter. After all that He did for us, it is the least we can do, though if we really are thinking about Him and His sacrifice, we will do much more than just remember Him--we will also keep His commandments.

Sharing Time: When has thinking about Jesus helped you keep His commandments?
