service is inconvenient.

30 01 2011

We had Stake Conference this weekend with Elder Kevin W. Pearson a member of the seventy.
Wow.
If you have not heard him speak, you are missing out.

He is vibrant, dynamic and fun to listen to.
The Saturday night session (a session I do not normally attend – haha) was incredible.

Elder Pearson spoke about the importance of staying near the tree. (The tree of life)
He said that one of the best ways to stay near the tree is to serve.

And then he said this:

“service is meant to be inconvenient”
This is part of what makes service so important to each of us.
It allows us to put aside our selfish desires and focus on another one of Heavenly Father’s children.
“O ye that embark in the aservice of God, see that ye bserve him with all your heart, might, mind and strength, that ye may stand cblameless before God at the last day.” (D&C 4:2)

The session was wonderful.

As far as my goals for the week…



They went well… but as usual, could’ve gone better.
How are your goals going?
