Obedience is the topic of this month's First Presidency message by President Monson. He teaches:
"The greatest lesson we can learn in mortality is that when God speaks and we obey, we will always be right... When we keep the commandments, our lives will be happier, more fulfilling, and less complicated. Our challenges and problems will be easier to bear, and we will receive [God’s] promised blessings.
“God’s commandments are not given to frustrate us or to become obstacles to our happiness. Just the opposite is true. He who created us and who loves us perfectly knows just how we need to live our lives in order to obtain the greatest happiness possible. He has provided us with guidelines which, if we follow them, will see us safely through this often treacherous mortal journey."For family home evening, review President Monson's message and watch THIS VIDEO on obedience. Discuss the "barriers" in our lives and how being obedient blesses us.
